For an exciting change in our weather, it iced a bit overnight. So, I can't say that it snowed... lol...
I threw myself a pity party yesterday mid-morning. I'd decided to write and my brain was completely blank. Completely. Feeling dramatic about the entire situation I decided I was done writing. That I'd never get another word down, and might as well shut down the blog and my website, because -- what was the point?
After much pacing and fussing, tearing of clothes and gnashing of teeth (okay, maybe I exaggerate a little), I settled down. I had stories in my head. It shouldn't be impossible to get them written. All I had to do was 250 words (I really wanted 500, but at this point I wasn't going to push it). 250 words... easy peasy, right?
I opened document after document, but nothing was working. Finally, I'd opened "Now and Forever" the "Kitchen Matches" sequel and decided I was going to get 250 *&^%$ words down if it was the last thing I did.
It was agonizing. I birthed each word like it was a two-week overdue breech baby. But darn if I didn't get just over 500 words done.
Now, I just need to repeat that today. Without the gnashing of teeth.
Here's an interesting video (hated the music, but the information was good):
