Read Sarah Wilson’s article on delayed gratification on the weekend and it reminded me of my writing process. I like to let things bubble away for ages without writing anything down. By the time I allow myself to write it’s in a burst of creativity like the start of a race horse as they burst forth through the gates. The trick is to stay the length of the course. (With a nod to the Melbourne Cup Race tomorrow.) I’ve been wanting to write for the last couple of weeks, but been holding back until today, the start of NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month).
Good luck to all the NaNoWriMo writers. Got a feeling this is one of the best days of the process.
