A writer’s rhythm
More and more as i write, I find myself in greater and greater flow.
I am currently writing the first draft of the third book of a trilogy. I find it quite startling how much i can write and how much comes to me as i write about A, then ideas for B,C and D are flooding out.
This morning is a good example, i am down with a cold and both noise and bright lights make my head and eyes very sore, but i have the urge to write. I went back to bed after breakfast but could not rest. I had visions, ideas and creativity for parts of the book that are chapters away, even the ending has appeared twice recently.
I make a point of writing this stuff down, even if it is just bullet points, but enough to pick up later when i need to.
I am on day eight of actual writing of this book, and with more to come today, i am well into it, currently, after 7.5 days writing it is at 28,000 words. So many more ideas are coming thick and fast.
What do you find, am i a “freak” about these writing episodes that keep me here, at the computer hour after hour as by the thousand words come tumbling out. I know that for the most part i am just the vessel being used for this creativity, for if i was picking the words, i would not use “sanguine”. I had to look it up after i typed it.
Let me know what you think, how does it work for you?
Keep writing, for you know you have to…..
