About a week ago I began working on another writing project – I have several started. With so much going on in this house I’m always busy and on the go. However, I always find time to write. When I started my current writing project I had a few lines written, then came to a stop. I was stuck. This usually happens. I don’t call it writers block, just stuck, for now. I always find a way around it. Every day I would open the screen, then stare at the words, waiting for something, some idea to just pop up into my head like the proverbial light bulb that instantly lights up when someone has an idea.
Last night I laid in bed, trying to think of what to write, how to work the next sentence. I often do this. I find my best ideas are late at night when I should be trying to go to sleep. I knew what I wanted the story to be about, but I was having issues with putting the story into words. I prayed to the Lord above, send me a sign, give me a little help, a nudge in the right direction.
I pulled the covers up and got comfortable, time to call it a night and go to sleep. Then I got that Eureka moment! The idea I was wanting. I had been writing the story wrong. I had it from one characters perspective and needed to switch it around, to come from a different characters perspective.
This morning I began re-doing the story and presto, the words began to flow! It should take me a few days to get it written, then go back over it a few times, editing it. Then polish it up to be sent off.
I will give you a hint on what it’s about – horses! As soon as the story is polished and ready to be sent to the publisher, I will tell you a little more on what the story is about.
