It’s been a long couple of years. Some people would call it writer’s block. Others call it depression. There are many names for it. But in the past two years I have written almost nothing. I have started a lot of articles, blogs and other pieces of writing, but the words to get the thoughts across just haven’t come. I’ve done a lot of work during this time to make changes and find my words again.
It felt like my words were stuck in a bottle and a huge cork that I couldn’t handle kept them in.
Now it has happened. The work has paid off. But I really don’t know how it happened. I don’t know what I really did, but two weeks ago the cork flew off the bottle and the words starting escaping. In those last two weeks I have written five chapters in a chapter book, 11,500 words of rewriting on my next novel and today I got the great news.
I can’t talk about the details yet, but …. Yesterday, I submitted an idea proposal for a novella and today I received a contract for it. I’m celebrating.
The words have exploded out of the bottle. I’ve found my way back to my writing world. I feel whole again. Time to celebrate.
