Brain Seize

It has been months since I wrote new text. Months. I thought I had forgotten how to write.

I sat down at my tablet, fingers poised over the keyboard, filled with excitement of the new adventure awaiting.

And I struggled to write that first paragraph. That first page took 3 days. I couldn’t finish page 2.

What in the world was going on? I had the fire, the characters, the main plot points, and still nada.

The characters weren’t showing up to the chapter.

Had I forgotten how to write or was this writers block.

I took a day and a half of noodling the through around before it dawned on me. I had been in this silent space before. The characters weren’t showing up because this wasn’t where their story began, this wasn’t the first page, or any page in the book.

So now I must sit down and revisit my notes and see where the story begins. The characters are waiting but it’s more like playing hide and seek instead of showing. up for a coffee date.

Until next time, stay healthy.
