What Does It Mean to Be a Writer?
"There is a swelling storm and I'm caught up in the middle of it all...and it takes control..." So begins the song "Waves" sung by Australian Dean Lewis. Sometimes it seems a storm is brewing, sometimes we get caught in the storm. We ride the swells up, then down, as we wait for calmer days.
As a writer what I can do is read--which I'm doing. Lots of reading. And I can use this time to revise my stories. It's hard to be creative when a storm is swirling. For those of us who have bouncy brains we have to find a way to focus. One thing that always helps me is to take a long walk.
This is a nugget. Look at this house--how many questions come to mind? How old is it? Who lived here? Who died here? I think a ghost might be inside.
