Breakthrough

I'm a big-time victim of writer's block and it's been the bane of my existence the last few months. I can't begin to express the frustration I've felt as I've had several great (in my opinion) story ideas, but the words just wouldn't come to life on my screen for some unknown reason. So day by day, I've been adding to my "project ideas" folder in hopes that I will wake up one morning having conjured a muse in my dreams. Sadly, I've simply found my laptop judging me as I continuously set it aside for some Real Housewives of Orange County therapy.

But today is different. I don't know why exactly, but it is. My mind feels empowered and I can almost feel the electricity of creativity running through my veins! A plot hit me like an epiphany while I was in the shower, and I have already written the synopsis. So why today of all days am I suddenly free from those literary bindings? I don't know ...

Armed with fresh strawberries and jasmine tea, I'm in intense writing mode on this misty Friday afternoon. I painted my fingernails a color to match the tone of my novel, so I can proudly watch them fly over the keys and tap out success.

I wish I had more to say, but all I can think about is my cast of characters and their soon-to-be antics. So, farewell for now :)
