Yesterday the dark clouds were swirling overhead, and there was an air of impending doom all around.
Much like those few hours before a storm is about to hit, one of those really big ones with very loud thunder that feels like it’s over your roof and not moving, and, a short time later, the deafening sound of torrential rain.
You know the feeling, you could cut the air with a knife.
I’ve been in that state of mind for some time now, but yesterday something changed.
It wasn’t the internet, that was still as dreadful as ever, despite the assurances we get that we will have the best internet in the world. The best joke, I think they mean, after spending $50 billion on it, I had better speeds on my 300 baud modem 20 odd years ago.
Sorry, I had to have another whinge about it. Politicians are such liars.
No, it was not something I could put my finger on.
What was it?
I found I could write again.
Well, I could always write, but it was a matter of forcing myself to sit down and do like it was a chore I really didn’t want to do. And how easy it was to get sidetracked in social media.
Today I simply looked at the writing I wanted to do, and it all came to me, without having to stare at the blank screen before the words would come, and then find myself deleting them over and over. 500 words really meant writing 5,000 crappy words and continually revising.
Today I could write 5,000 words and it was all good.
Let’s hope it continues into tomorrow.
