When the wall comes crumbling down …

brick-wallExcuse the brief post today. I’ve been stalled on finishing my novel for a few weeks now. At some point, my mind erected a wall between me and my story. I’ve tried to force through it resulting in copious use of the delete key the next day. I’ve tried ignoring it resulting in many blog posts and the piece of flash fiction I posted yesterday, but no progress on the novel. I’ve re-read earlier chapters of my novel hoping to spark a fire to burn through it. No effect on the wall, but I did manage edits and revisions in those earlier chapters.

But yesterday something changed. I don’t know what. I was going about my usual day of writing email, replying to comments on my blog, leaving comments on others blogs, checking Facebook, Twittering, and playing a thousand rounds of Bejeweled Blitz when I realized something was shaking under the surface. The wall started crumbling.

So, today I’m back to work on the novel. Send good thoughts my way.

  1. Glad to hear you are unjammed! I am currently working back through a story, trying to figure out where to take it. Perhaps that isn’t the right way to say it…I know where it’s going I just have to get it there!

    Look forward to reading more from you!

    1. Thank you J.L., I apologize for not commenting on your blog yet. I went there briefly, but then dived back into writing. I’ll visit again soon.

      Yes, getting from point to point in a story can be a difficult task. Just wait and listen. It will come to you.
