In my last post, I forgot to mention that (getting distracted along my way to making a point as usual), later that day, I read an email from the local writer's guild, and for our annual conference, James. N. Frey (not the guy who wrote a million little pieces) will be the keynote speaker. So having just been inspired by him, I am now really looking forward to this conference.
The bad news is I am already behind today with getting my workout done. The good news, the reason is because I was writing, adding more to a scene in Echo. Finally, finally I am writing again. And I don't just mean plunking my butt down in a chair, and staying there till I get nice long strings of words on a page (though that is the most important part); I mean thinking about the story and writing in my head, when I am brushing my teeth, and driving the car. Story has come back to weave in and out of my every day life again. Little whisperings. Perhaps then there really might be a writer someplace inside me. Hopefully I can stay attuned to this, and keep working, and learn new ways of working, so I can bring my life closer to a time, when I can know she is there, and be that writer.
