I’m letting my fingers fly across the keyboard and doing my best not to edit as I go. Trying to get back into the zone when you feel like a book hero with all the interruptions does deserve a reward. There’s days when the words barely flow out and feel like a trickle. Then, there’s days when the buckets are pouring out in plenty.
The trick is getting words to work for you no matter what the day is like, or who you met in the day. Who knows being a mood or mad at someone might be the drive you need. Feelings while writing is okay, and I find it better to be a bit moody. If you’re crying when you write, then chances are that someone else will too.
Of course, that part does scare me a little with all the horror scripts and dark subjects coming an in increased number. What does this say about our psyche over the years? I’m sorry but some people need more unicorns and rainbows in their lives. I have to wonder how an author like Stephen King decompresses after he’s written some gruesome chapters. I’ve read that he plays music to help his antisocial tendencies, maybe that’s his outlet.
Life isn’t all sunshine but I think it’s time for us to push the needle more toward the middle for a little while. I don’t need anymore nightmares even if I’m hooked on the “Mindhunter” show. Did I mention that I bought an extra lock for my door because it freaks me out that this could be my neighbor.
I guess I’m never going to be a writer of horror because I keep gagging every time there’s too visual of a scene. If I ever do spend time with a doctor or similar office, it would be for research. Don’t get me wrong, keep writing if this is your genre. It’s just not for me. I can write about an assassin but not surgery or certain kinds of crimes that turn my stomach. Yes, my brain is a puzzle.
Whatever your preference, keep those fingers moving this week until you find your rhythm!
