Writing Wednesday 24: The Black Snowbanks of Spring

Leave a comment

It’s March, and the gradual, messy process of melting has begun. Of course, at any moment we have to be braced for a new snowstorm. Spring here is a process of two steps forward, one — or probably three — steps back. That got me thinking about how often a creative process, like writing, can be messy in the same way a Newfoundland spring is. You think you’re making progress, and then … you get slammed back and wonder if you’re making any progress at all.

I am, though. Making progress, that is. I’ve gotten to the end of the section of the book that I wrote during NaNoWriMo and given it a vigorous going-over with my red pen, and now I have to input all those changes into the computer. Soon I should be really moving forward and writing new words!

Big news on the vlog is that next week will be my 25th Writing Wednesday! I want to do a Q&A video for my 25th, so if you have any questions about writing, books, or anything you’ve ever wanted to ask me or any other writer — post in the comments here, and I’ll try to answer it in next week’s video.
