Today, as I sit here and write this post, I stare at my to do list... One word jumps out at me.
I hate going to the dentist. It can be a chore. It can be scary. And it can be painful.
Sometimes writing is like that. I love when the words just come to me, and everything is easy. The story flows and the pages turn quickly. But other times, writing can be like going to the dentist.\
A bit scary...
And sometimes painful!
Most of the time, writing comes easy for me. But sometimes, like with the piece I've been working on lately, writing is hard. I dont' know why that happens, but it drives me crazy when it does. I feel like nothing is working, and I'm struggling to find the words. And even when I do find the words, I don't like them very much.
There's nothing more satisfying than smiling after I reread something I've written because I know it's good. I can feel it in my gut. But it's scary as hell when I read something and second guess every word on the page.
Ugh! I hate that.
So back to the drawing board for me today, and then off to the dentist. Oh, joy! Something tells me today will not be fun. Grrrr....
Cross your fingers that the words will come easier today, and the dentist won't be so bad. I need to smile again and soon!
So tell me, what do you do when nothing seems to be going right?
