A Writer’s Life (aka A Little Bit of Insight)

Location: Anywhere, anyplace, anytime

WRITERBRAIN:

WRITE NOW.

DANNI:

Seriously? NOW?

WRITERBRAIN:

WRITE NOW.

DANNI:

I’m driving/at a movie/snuggled up to Bronxie/doing some activity that is 100% not conducive to writing.

WRITERBRAIN:

WRITE NOW.

WRITERBRAIN floods my eyes with perfect imagery and fills my ears with the most intriguing plot and musical turns of phrase.

WRITERBRAIN:

WRITE NOW. YOU’LL FORGET.

DANNI:

OK, OK!!

DANNI stops all activity to write. Sometimes she has to go buy a new notebook and pen because she is out and only has an impossibly tiny bag with her. 

WRITERBRAIN:

WRITE FASTER.

DANNI scribbles down rough outline and as many phrases and images as she can grab, while WRITERBRAIN sends more. It is impossible to keep up but DANNI gets most of it.

***

TIME PASSES. DANNI sits down with her new notebook and her insane outline and notes.

DANNI:

OK, ready – let’s get to work!

WRITERBRAIN:

NEW IDEA. WRITE NOW.

DANNI:

Are  you shitting me???????

-FIN-

So that’s where I’m at right about now. I’ve got 5 separate drafts, all of which are begging to be written, none of which actually want to be written when I go to write them.

New words are coming – be patient!
