What To Write??
Posted by Joanne Hayle
One of my first thoughts this morning after, “I need caffeine!” was what shall I do/write today?
Was I in a fiction or non fiction mood?
A poetic mood?
A write all day lost in my imagination mood?
An editing mood?
A business mood?
Decisions, decisions! But a wonderful sort of a puzzle too!
You see, I finished a story last night and it is resting before I edit it. (Strange isn’t it? If you edit too soon after writing you sometimes can’t see errors but others ALWAYS do!)
Well, as luck would have it, the question was answered for me as soon as I opened my e-mails.
A publication said “yes” to one of my stories and “it needs work” to another one so the “it needs work” has received some loving attention and rewriting and whilst I left that for a few minutes before a second proof read I wrote a poem.
And to think that after my deliberations I had decided to write a short story set in the thirties about a mysterious disappearance…
Lessons for the day:
1. Don’t plan, go with the flow…
2. Drink more coffee before you start debating with your creative self! (The OCD part of my brain loves to think, rethink, rerethink…you get the idea! so it’s better if I’m actually awake!!)
Have a great day.
