You find yourself starting a staring competition with the painfully plain word doc/paper, wondering where did the words go…
Last few days have been so good to me, specially the weekends. While last weekend i was visiting my person and her family, this weekend was all about eating, writing, episodes, coffee and writing…yes i know i said writing twice cause i frkn wrote a lot. God! i love long weekends.
Funny thing is the story i started as an exercise to get out of my writer’s block has turned out to be a project in itself. Let’s see.
So, two amazing weekends are over and from tomorrow i’m back to Gotham. Guess, its time to get out of fun zone.
Leaving you with pictures from past few days.
Last night I wrote 1300 some words for Dominique part II, yes you heard it right. I still haven’t finished the Part 1 and now I have few pages for part 2 with me.
What? how? why?…well, for past few months I have been struggling with a block because I had stories inside my head but I couldn’t write them down. Just couldn’t. There was this one particular story that I narrated to a friend who loved it, the concept. He asked me to work on it, because he would love to read it. So I thought cool I can do that. But I couldn’t. I would sit and stare at the plain MS word document.
Yesterday I had a dream, true story, I’m talking to some writer don’t know who and I’m asking the person how do you work on a book when you have two or three different stories banging and colliding with each other in a tiny head of yours. I woke up with no answer, I went to work, I worked, I sulked, I drank coffee and I listened to music and BANG #Epiphany.
Universe from some corner threw an idea to me. It hit me and I was like “That’s it”. I mean here i was listening to Digital Daggers and i just saw the whole story right in front of my eyes with the song being a perfect background score.
So simple, I had it all right in front of me. I merged the two stories because come one weren’t they meant to be. The story goes like this -you can’t work on A cause you are thinking of B and you can work on B cause A is still at the back of your mind. So you club A and B…TaDa!
So my friends, I think I’m back…I think…Cheers…
Sometimes i dream about people i dont even know. Someone i never met. I mean sometimes these dreams are so real, yet i have no idea who the people are im with. This morning i woke up to such a dream, it was a tragic and sad dream but it felt so real and thus scary.
Anyhow, i have had a very lazy weekend. I didnt do much, except having coffee, going for long drive by myself, finding me junk food, reading a little, watching lots of episodes all night long, sleeping all afternoon and for a change i did spend time walking, rope-skipping and running a little.
I think im going to be very sorry for saying i hate winters because im already hating the early summer. It was so hot all day but thing is right now its all rainy, windy and good outside. Im already dreading the months of May, June and July.
I’m taking forever to finish “The Book Thief” and my writer’s block is like a disease i cant get rid of…
