So, seven things about myself
I love mornings. I love coffee! My favorite show to watch in reruns is The Nanny I would love to visit Alaska for a summer. (Summer--not winter!!) Reading 2 to 3 books at a time has become the way I read now. My husband surprises me with very cool watches because he's a very cool guy. I'm glad I met Ciara!!
Here are my 7 bloggers. Oh, but I have 8--Hope that's all right!!
I love to read. I mean really love to read. And right now I'm reading up to 4 books. There are so many books I want to read, but haven't yet. To me reading is relaxing. Even the books that take you on a roller coaster--yes, I can relax on the coaster. I love having my imagination sparked with ideas. I love reading into a world someone else has created. I love reading how characters handle certain situations.
I just love to read.
I can't remember a time in my life where I wasn't reading. I've always had a book I'm reading. It's only been later here in life that I've learned to read more than one book at a time. I find it fun. I don't read the same type of books together. Right now I'm reading a YA, a devotional, a women's fiction and a contemporary romance. All different, yet all intriguing.
What about you? Voracious reader? Not at all? Can you read more than 1 book at a time?
I'm talking from a writer's perspective this morning. I know all writers are different and they have their own way of doing things. Some plot, some don't. Some know every scene before they start writing. Some don't. I don't. But I've come to know my progress and it works for me. It really does. For the most part. Today wasn't a most part. And this is what I've learned over the years regarding my writing process. If it's really hard to write a scene--usually it's the wrong scene. I spent over an hour this morning on a few hundred words. It's not working. But, at least I have something down. I will think on what I've written. And I did have a light bulb moment while writing, so I know it was all worthwhile. I need to take the light bulb moment and create my scene around that. So, I will think on this today, then tomorrow get back at it.
How about you? What do you do when things seem like they're not working?
