I have a couple of storylines pinging around inside my head and that's exciting. Only trouble is I have little time right now to do anything about them. Knowing how elusive storylines can be, I hope to jot them down somewhere (preferably places I'll find them again) so when a couple of minutes are free, I can get cracking with real writing!
This past year has been a tough one for me and my writing. Not that I haven't written anything, but that I've had a lot of trouble thinking of myself as a writer. With the dearth of ideas came insecurity. Shouldn't a REAL writer have a great idea more than once or twice a year? If I were a REAL writer, wouldn't I be chomping at the bit to get something new in Word?
Well, I have had a lot of voices in my head telling me I must not be a real writer since I've been struggling for very long. So it came as a surprise--a pleasant one--to have those two little germs of ideas pop up out of nowhere.
I just hope they'll keep perking until I have time to put them into words!
