Last week, we discussed the perfect swing and how it relates to authors.
I wanted to revisit it again because I find it an interesting topic. Have you, as a writer, ever sat down to write and completely lost time, where the words flow out of you without little effort?
I'm sure you have.
Yes, there are times when (myself included) I have to pull, push, twist, and shove the words out of my brain and onto the virtual page. Oddly enough, most of my blog posts are written in a single draft (with very little editing, save for fixing incorrect grammar or adding to something I had written). Right now, I'm almost done with a Halloween-themed novella. It's something I got the idea for in mid-October last year.
Just the other day, I brought my laptop to work . . . and the words just flowed without effort. There were areas where I didn't plan on exploring before, making the story that much more richer.
The more and more you write, the more times you will experience this. It's a great feeling, getting lost in the words you're putting down. Don't stop to edit what you had just written. Just keep writing.
And have fun.
