I want to thank everyone for their kind words and encouragement last Wednesday when I confided I was totally slumpin’ it on the writing front.
You gave me the motivation to rise, dust myself off, re-open that word document and write a whole page ! (baby steps okay ?)
However, something amazing happened to me this weekend.
I had an idea for a new book.
I’ve been waiting for this for awhile now. It seems like ever since I finished my third, I’ve just been flopping around like a fish out of water, hoping for inspiration. When it didn’t come, I tried to force it. My now-four-page wip is based on an idea I’ve had on the shelf for years and even though I think it’s a good idea and it could make a great book- it’s a darker, more drawn out, complicated paranormal romance. (Needs major brain power, of which I am currently running low)
My new idea is for a funny YA contemporary romance and it’s just coming to me- scene after scene. I have a title, the blurb is written, the first page complete and I can’t wait to completely jump into it.
Have you ever gotten an idea that had you chomping at the bit (- first time I’ve ever used this expression ever, I swear) to sit down and write after a monumental slump? Why do you think certain projects tempt us more than others at a certain time?
