Working again


Behind this window I am finally writing again, catching up on all the 1,000-word days I lost when my husband was sick and in hospital. This is critical, as my book delivery date has not changed. A dear friend wanted to come by and visit us this afternoon, but I finally know what do in the chapter I'm working on, the sentences are flowing at last, and so I decided to be honest and tell our friend that I don't want to pause in the writing to get dressed for the day or to tidy the house and could we maybe figure something out for the weekend instead. I don't want her to think we don't appreciate her. We are definitely looking forward to seeing her. But I am only at fifty-three thousand words and I have to get to seventy-five thousand in the next month or so, and then begins the work of editing and revising the completed draft. Our friend is an artist and a worker among workers. She says she understands. I trust this is true.

  8. Seizing the moment when words are coming easy and the flow is good. So satisfying. Nobody enjoys writer's block, but we all experience it sometimes. Your friend, being a creative type, likely understands. Achieving your goal has to be very satisfying. Susan

  9. It would be no different if you worked outside of the home. You're working. I'm quite sure your friend understands.
