It’s been a whirlwind week here in Mermaid-land…there was the release of Jay’s book, then I had many talks with my agent about the status of my book (still in progress!), then dentist appointments and school carnivals and huge piles of laundry and Stephen Colbert announcing he’s running for president. It’s enough to make a girl go nutty!
So it’s time to get back in the saddle and get back to writing. Sometimes when things are hectic, I find it hard to settle into a quiet groove and get back into my little story. Does anyone else have this problem?
But kind of like jogging, once I force myself into starting, it feels great. (I just have to keep finding new ways to force myself into starting!)
This week, I decided to jumpstart myself by reading books that might inspire me. I’m in the middle of ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY NOT by David LaRochelle. And it is positively great! His writing is so precise, as if he put care into every word. I find that I have a smile on my face the entire time I’m reading it. Which makes the story so satisfying.
So I’m going to get back in the saddle and start writing, thanks to inspiration from David! With my new motto: Put. Care. Into. Every. Word.
Oh, and my other motto: Go. Do. Laundry.
