    1. I guess that’s how it is for someone trying to do something new for the first time…ups and downs. One day everything flows nicely and I can see the novel like it was already there on my table, and the next day it’s like hiking in a dark forest full of obstacles. I think the key is to take breaks, do something else and then return to the forest with a flashlight 🙂

  1. You can do it my friend. And yes it’s up and down, but even if you just write a few words, it’s farther than you were before. I’ve been there too. We can both do this. 🙂

  2. I’ve had blissful interludes (seems a long time ago) when the writing just seemed to work, but I think that’s not how it really is, especially if what you are creating has many layers. It is bound to be a struggle in the sense a quest is a struggle. It’s at those margins of frustration, perhaps (?), where new things crop up. Do you know Clarissa Pinkola Estes – Jungian storyteller. “Women who run with wolves.” She has done some fantastic CDs. Can recommend ‘The Creative Fire – 3 discs of unalloyed wisdom about the creative process.

  3. Thanks for your kind comment Tish. I hope being at the margins of frustration will help new inspiration to crop up! I don’t know Clarissa Pinkola Estes but will definitely explore the Creative Fire!

    1. Hi there! It’s too early to congratulate. But it has gone better than I expected thanks to much encouragement from blogging friends. Your Grace has also been an inspiration on the road 🙂 I trust she’s doing well! I still have ways to go though. The last part will be slower going…
