I’m doing some hard work. Work that involves a lot of thinking and just as much writing. And sometimes its hard. And sometimes you have to take a break from it and let it sit before you move on. I spend a lot of time thinking about how I’m going to write things, how I’m going to make the story move and move people. I think while I’m making dinner and while I drive to preschool. I think a lot. And usually I know exactly what I’m going to do.

But, I’ve been mulling over these words and these people and figuring it out.

And I didn’t know how to make it work.

And I didn’t want to just let it sit. I wanted to work and figure it all out.

But, the Universe told me to stop. It actually sent this huge hurricane. And we lost power for about three days. Which, in the grand scheme of things, is nothing. But, it was frustrating because I wanted to work, I wanted to find those words and make those scenes. But, the Universe had told me to slow my roll. I needed to let it sit.

Today was the first day in a week that I was able to sit down and work. And I did. I didn’t figure it all out. But, I got some things done and that’s a good thing.
