This struck me for two reasons. Well, probably more, but two right off the top of my head. One, it’s a nice message to get and hang onto in dark times. Two, isn’t this the way a lot of romances work? Either the heroine or hero is in a bad place, feeling lost and alone, and things look their darkest and then BOOM! He or she walks into their lives and bingo. The story takes off.
Silver, there are some things that are best forgotten. And when I remember what a few of them are, I’ll drop you a line. But a couple of things worth remembering, that are all too easily forgotten, are the times in your life when you felt absolutely alone and uncertain. Yet somehow, perhaps beyond perception, there was a great click, after which suddenly a new friend appeared, an idea was imparted, or a connection established, causing the tides to turn and the floodgates to open.
And remembering this, should such “alone and uncertain times” ever revisit, however dark they may seem, you’ll at least be comforted by recalling how transient they always are.
Pass it on,
Silver, did you just hear something?
This is also often the case when actually writing and you hit a rough patch. Words don’t fit. The story seems convoluted and messy and just not…right. You’re frustrated, your Muse has run away from home, and you wonder why the heckfire you ever decided that you wanted to be a writer. And then…like magic…CLICK! It all falls into place. Don’t give up. It’s a good fight we’re fighting and we all know, deep down that the words will come. Yeah, yeah, sometimes they come kicking and screaming, but they come. Wait…did you just hear something? What’s clicked in your life lately?
