When I'm stuck on a chapter or a scene - I feel miserable. It's like I'm waiting in an airport terminal and the plane is delayed and delayed and delayed. After awhile, I start getting really fidgety and want to run screaming around the concourse. Of course, I don't, but I still feel that way. All jittery inside. Once I had three of the Starbuck coffee beans and couldn't believe how twitchy I got.

That's about the way I'm feeling now. I can't go long without writing. My body rebels.

I've decided to go out and find a 'new' spot to write with my yellow legal pad. The story really wants to be written... Life is just so complicated now, I'm finding it difficult to do even small tasks.

Writing is a very LARGE task *smiles*


  1. Good idea! I have several projects going at once so that I switch between them. I've also discovered that one of my best places to end writer's block is a restaurant. Why? I don't know. I only know that when I go to a restaurant alone and sit at that table with paper and pen, I suddenly find pages written. Praying for you!

  2. I found that true, too, Judy. Restaurants are the best place for me...

    However, it seems when I find a great restaurant to write at - it goes under.... I could just scream.... I really do eat their food and pay them... so you'd think they'd stay in business.

    I usually spend at least two hours when I found a good place for writing.

    Thanks for the prayers - some heading your way, too!

  3. Hate when that happens: Find a place you like and it goes away.

    Thanks for the prayers, much appreciated.
