I am working on a novel. Yes, I said it out loud. A little scary to actually commit it into writing. 🙂
But I have hit a roadblock in the plot. Not sure where the characters are going next and what should happen.
So….I haven’t been writing at all, which makes me feel like I am wasting precious time. We only have so many hours on this earth.
The more I think about it though…..isn’t that how we live life? We move ahead, living our lives, sometimes without a clear plan or path. That is why the Bible is so very precious to me….it gives me direction and a path to follow when I have no clue. And it gives the right direction and path, every time.
I am thinking I just need to start again….begin writing and see where it goes. There are always the cut and delete options. My poor characters have stayed still long enough.
Advice is always welcome from any of you readers who are writers…..how do you move past a standstill in your creative process?
I have been playing the piano this morning. Longing, sweet, melancholy melodies that express what is inside me in a way that words can never do. Pouring frustrations out upon the keys. Feeling the feelings as they come.
Healing through the keys, through the instrument, through the music. One note at a time.
If you are looking for a listening or playing recommendation this morning, I heartily and unreservedly recommend Benny Andersson, Piano.
