Posting Something

By Keith N Fisher

It’s been a tough week, but I’m not complaining. I know that everybody experiences opposition. Life was never supposed to easy.

When I sat down to write, my mind went blank. I drifted away into parts unknown, places where I could have everything I wanted. Places where nobody imposed anything on me.

Fortunately my current novel is in a place where the characters have taken control and I can write in that direction. Anything new is good right? Even if I have to delete it later? I do, however, like the stuff I wrote this week, but it’s in the place where we find out who done it. I have so much information to impart, I’m trying to decide the best way to tell it. Should I have the guilty party explain in monologue? Or perhaps an explanation from the agent in charge will suffice?

Well, as I said at the outset, I’m not complaining. I’m just explaining why my blog sucks this week. I felt it was important to be consistent, just to post something. Thank you for reading and commenting. I’ll do better next week. I hope your work is going well. Keep writing no matter what happens. Here is a picture to help you reach your happy place. Maybe you could write about it.Good luck with your writing—see you next week

Wish I were on that beach! Cute cartoon, too. I agree that some weeks are definitely better than others! : )

I'm in that place right now, too. It's a good place to be--just like that beach!

Wishing you a week of productivity and peace.

Well, that is a lovely happy place.
Good luck with your WIP. Once I get used to a new direction, I end up feeling good about it. Have fun!

Sometimes characters know where they're going and sometimes they need an "author ex machina" to swoop in and give them a peak at the big picture. But like you say, it's best to move on even if you as the big all-knowing author are clueless. Like Edison's experiments with the light bulb, at the very least you can find out what DOESN'T work.
