Words And Writing

The novella is almost finished!  I am so excited!  And, of course, there is a problem:  The ending just won’t present itself.  *head desk*  I know the last scene from its current one, but there is an expanse of words between the two I’m finding it difficult to bridge!  The end is in sight, but I’m not sure how to get there.

In many ways, this is indicative of writing, creating in general.  As the project progresses, there are problems to figure out, jury-rigs to jury-rig, and sometimes the direct approach to get to where you know you need to go simply doesn’t work and you end up taking a detour you simply weren’t expecting.  When this happens there simply isn’t anything to do but commit and figure it out…write it out.

Another thing I’ve realized is the more you work to get the story right, no matter how much it twists and turns, putting yourself in front of the computer, tablet, or paper gets easier.  It is something you know you need to do and, so, you get it done.  In the end, you end up having fun.

Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

    I was having the same problem – the end just wouldn’t present itself, but I just kept writing and then, there it was! What a relief!
