Amazing How The Mind Works!

Monday, March 22, 2010

Creativity is an amazing animal flitting in and out of my brain. Why won't it just settle in and stay awhile so I can write from start to finish, no edits no problems? Instead, a story spills out at rapid speed and then sits, parts not quite right, waiting. Sometimes I'm charmed into thinking I'm finished; thinking it's ready to submit. My wonderful critique group has their way with it but still, something holds it back, holds me back from submission.

And then it hits! The aha arrives in the early morning hours. I jump out of bed knowing that the fixes for not just one but two stories have arrived, good and strong. The exact pieces I didn't know I needed slide seamlessly into place.

Now they are ready. No more excuses. Time to submit.
