While working on our house last week, getting it ready to go on the market, as I applied gloss to the third door that evening, a thought struck me, first in the head and then in the heart…..I miss writing! But what is it I REALLY miss?
– that feeling of excitement as the blank page fills up with ink and my characters play out another chapter of their lives?
– watching a new writing idea emerge as bubbles and lines on the page, linking into a diagram as a story unfolds?
– only having ten things to check on my list after a day of editing?
– sitting scribbling, then crossing out and rewriting for hours until, finally, I’ve got it and the words flow of their own accord?
I miss all of the above, but mostly, I’m missing time for me and the part of my mind that has to write.
