Nagging Need to Write
I regularly write a journal entry. Pen or pencil and paper. Not every day, but most. So, I started there. But I got busy and never even finished it! Needless to say, it didn't scratch that itch.
I ran through several of the stories that I've started over the years, thinking maybe I needed to kick out a chapter or two. Or maybe I needed to 'fix' a character or elaborate on a setting. Something! But none of my current works-in-progress was speaking to me.
I considered that perhaps I needed to start something new. But NOTHING interesting was coming to me. Not to mention, I couldn't even decide fiction, non-fiction, rant, interest article, etc.
So ultimately, I'm creating a blog entry...about needing to write. Essentially this blog entry is about nothing. And I still feel the need, the out-right desire to practice my craft. I'm getting that burning in my core to WRITE! I think I'll resume my Exercises in Writing until it comes to me.
