Life is So Much More Interesting In My Head
I haven’t put a word to page in a while. But I have words in my head all the time. I have plots and characters and conversations with those characters every day. I wander around like a fool with a silly smile on my face or a grimace or actually with my lips moving as my characters talk to each other working things out.
This NY Times Opinionator blog, The Art of Being Still by Silas House, is an excellent comment on just this style of writing. And when Silas House says he was once embarrassed to say that he didn’t write every day, afraid he might be caught out as some sort of fraud, well… I have to say, he just made my day.
