Some days I find it impossible to begin…

There is is…looming large as life right in front of me. And yet, here I sit. ZERO words added to my count for the day and writer’s constipation as a result. (I’m sure some of you out there can relate….)

It all starts off with good intentions and then you get sucked into other people’s problems and before you know what happened, you’re sitting in front of your story wondering who these strangers are on the page in front of you.

easyreadingisdamnedhardwriting.wordpress.comBut I have to admit to having some amazing fantasies with my female protagonist. Why?? I gave her a juicy secret to sit on…and she’s not telling! Well, at least not yet.

Still, all of this fun is happening in my head as I work through the real life troubles of the people surrounding me on a daily basis. None of their problems are as interesting as the ones I’m creating on the page, but they are more pressing because they can actually annoy me to the point of action.

So, off I go to get my characters moving because all real world drama has been sent to bed! If I’m lucky, I can knock out the 837 words I need to stay on track and prove I’m not a Nano slacker.
