Coffee and Thinking

Posted By on May 22, 2012

Another night, another set of hours for staring at the dark ceiling. Insomnia is a surly non-friend. I’ve given up the nightly brawl with sleep and fueled up the coffee pot.

I’ve been thinking about my book, and about another story I’d like to write, a novella for a publisher who’s looking for shorter e-stories, and about the fact that Fast Draft has apparently freed up my creativity.

For a while, revisions have been so important to me that the process has choked me. I’ve had ideas, but if you’re a writer, you’ll know what I mean–they haven’t had satisfying spark. This writing so much has ideas sparking all over the place. Revision is always important for any writer. We can critique others and analyze what we read, but–I was about to generalize and say that writers are too close to their own work. I am too close to my own work to critique it effectively.

But, there’s nothing like writing to remind you how much you love writing.

I have two hours until anyone else stirs around here. And coffee is perfuming the air. Honestly. Don’t you think coffee is perfume after a long night of lying awake?

Time to write.
