This is kind of the stage I’m in right now. The ideas are there, but I’m struggling to get them on paper. Distractions and daily life seem to be getting in the way.
The struggle is real.
Captain Jack says it best.
Yo-ho, yo-ho, a writer’s life for me…I think. Here are 11 gifs that sum up a writer’s life quite nicely.
When a new idea hits you.
When your cat mocks your new idea.
This chapter needs some work…
The cat’s on the keyboard again.
The first time someone asks about your book.
When a friend/relative singles you out as a writer.
When you’re forced to socialize.
The one time you have company over.
When someone criticizes your writing.
When you get a good review on your book.
Why do I get my best writing ideas at the most inopportune moments? Someone should invent a device that transcribes writer’s ideas into meaningful notes so we don’t lose the great ideas we come up with. I guess this is why I carry a notebook and pen around with me everywhere I go. But it’s not the ideas I get when I’m ready for them that I’m talking about. It’s the ones I get when I’m driving or in the shower that I can’t write down–those are the ideas that seem to get lost inside my head somehow. It’s not until weeks later when the lightbulb comes on, the idea comes back to me, and I find myself saying, “Oh yeah. That’s what I was going to do with that scene.”
This board game pretty much sums up what it’s like to write your first book. It captures every emotion from angst to celebration. Enjoy.
On reading. On writing. On life.
