Pulling words forcibly from the keyboard


Ever have one of those writing days where each word is torture?  Sheer, pure, agony?  I had one last night. I mean, every word was hard fought and excruciating.  So, I finally decided I had  had all I could take and went to bed with the thought that it would be better to re-start that scene from scratch on another day.  

Guess what? Today, in the cold light of dawn, I got a chance to look at the words that were dragged out of me and shock me–  they were pretty good.   Not stellar but good nonetheless.  I am not going to have to trash the lot of them.  A little tweaking and I’m moving on to the next scene.  Whew (she wipes brow in relief).

    Here’s to the rest of the story slipping onto the page with ease.
