LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE
Capturing something powerful and elusive and then being able to hold it and show it to the world.
Performing a rare feat.
A moment of creative brilliance.
Coming up with that idea was like catching lightning in a bottle.
Definition from Urban Dictionary.
Capture your own lightning!
p.s. Thanks R.D. for the idea!

I don’t like spiders. At all.
A little while ago, I was deep in thought about writing and life and lo and behold I look at the bottom of the door and see a ginormous black widow. All of a sudden my worries and frustration’s disappeared but were replaced with fear. I just knew more would come out and surround me, climb up my legs, and bite me.
I know, an unhealthy, unrealistic fear.
And then it hit me. I could use this moment to my advantage. Back inside I wrote down my feelings while fresh, and will use them to enhance my current WIP.
Take control. But stay away from the spiders! Just in case…
p.s. Having said all that, I’m still so freaked out by the spider that I can’t even look for a picture to set as main image. 😩 Oh well, baby steps…
DECISONS, DECISIONS, DECISONS.
“The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them.” ~ Unknown
Life is all about decisions. The same is true when we write. WE create our worlds from characters to the plot. The idea blossoms into a draft and then into a finished product, the entire journey filled with thousands of decisions. Don’t be afraid to make them. Have fun with them. The decisions we make are the creative juice that make our writing rich and luscious.
“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it’s done. It’s that easy, and that hard.” ~ Neil Gaiman

Some days there’s nothing…
Today I give in to the silence. I stopped fighting it. The demands have ceased. The frustration gave way to acquiescence. Today I let go. In the quiet I will find truth and maybe some beauty.
