Leveling Up

Look at that — part 2 of my 4-part short story, featuring Lisette from Stalking the Beast, just went live. I hope you’ll drop by and take a look. Part 1 is here.

I’ve been joking with John O’Neill lately that I feel like I’ve leveled up as a writer — meaning that all of the sudden the process isn’t taking as long for me.

Now it may be that I’m just in a good patch again. Creative types go through patches of good or bad. For a good long while (TOO long) writing has been an upward struggle so — bad patch. All the sudden it’s fun again, and it’s happening quickly. And unless I delude myself, I’m producing some of my best work ever.

So is it just a mood thing, or a cyclical bit out of my control? Maybe. But I’d like to think that I’ve finally got enough experience under my belt, or made enough mistakes, (or the same mistakes often enough) that I’ve finally learned something. I was going to try and wax eloquently about it today and create a really useful post about writing, but instead I burned about fifteen minutes watching every one of these Wednesday Adams mini-shows.

It’s time to get to writing my prose, because I’m a writer, not a video watcher or blogger, and I’ve exceeded my self-alotted NON-writing time this morning. Still, there’s a lesson there for you. During writing time, don’t look at other stuff (although you should visit, because Melissa Hunter — actor and writer — has clever stuff).

Besides, it’s Thursday.
