In the Flow

I had the day off yesterday thanks to Christmas falling on the weekend, and I made the most of it. No, I didn't take a nap, though I was sorely tempted. No, I didn't exercise, although I really should have considering the amount of cookies I shoved down my throat over the weekend.

What I did do, however, was write.

Over the course of the afternoon and into the evening (with periodic breaks, some of them lasting an hour or more), I managed to write over 3,000 words. I even had an editor helping me out (see proof below), so I know they were good words. LOL

At one point in the evening, I was about ready to stop for the night since it was after 10 p.m. But something urged me on and I kept going. When I finally looked at the clock, 40 minutes had passed. I was in the flow. I love it when that happens!

  4. I was just thinking about the creative process. Sometimes it's more of a chore-we want to write, or sew or whatever, but it is not fun or relaxing. What we create may still be good, but it seems more like a chore to have done it. And other times, it's just like what happened here Melissa. I just spent two days creating a bag, and it was sheer pleasure for me. I enjoyed the process of creating as it happened, and the time flew by! I love when that happens!

    I'm so happy for your productive writing day, and I'm glad your editor was there to help:)

    Hugs!

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
