I've got a feelin'

It's an itchy, squirmy, tingly, excited all over kind of feeling. It's almost an ache. It's the feeling that I must write something new! I can't wait to start creating again. You might think I have some fabulous idea that I want to start, but I don't. I don't really know what I'm going to do next. Maybe a Christmas story, maybe those novellas I've been pondering. Maybe I'll dive right into another novel. I don't know. It doesn't really matter. The anticipation of coming up with a new idea is just delightful. The pull to write is so strong I can hardly resist it.

I have to, though. I have to get the rest of my novel typed up. I really don't like the typing part. It wouldn't be so bad if I weren't so dreadful at it. I'll type along happily for a few sentences, then look up and see the screen all full of red and green squiggles because I've messed up nearly every word. Sigh. It's coming along, though. I'll be finished typing next week and then it's on to the fun stuff again!

I love starting something new. Now only if I could love finishing something as much, I'd be all set.

Turn off the red and green squiggles if you need to. Use typing as an opportunity to reread your writing and polish it as you go. You could use one pass just for typing and another pass (turning the squiggles back on if you want) to fix typos and edit. Think of it as a good thing. :) Good luck with the next project!

Typing...(or wordprocessing)...one thing to consider is that through typing in the current novel, you'll improve for the next piece you're pondering!

Angie said...

Thanks, all. Lisa, finishing is a great feeling too! Thanks Marny and Terry for your advice. I definitely use typing as an excuse to make some initial revisions. Thanks for stopping by everybody!

Isn't it wonderful to have the anticipation of writing something new? I love that feeling, too!

Oh, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Also, I noticed you have a new header photo. It looks great. Love the clouds sitting on the mountain.

Oh, that is a wonderful feeling! I have been working on editing for quite a while...it will be nice when I can go to a new project again.

Here's an idea: hire one of your kids to type it up for you and move on to your shiny new possibilities. :o) Just a thought.

Have a great week, Angie!
