January was not the start I had hoped for (more ER visits). So, I’m calling a do-over. My energy, physical stamina, and creativity were caput. Often people say to push through it, just write, and honestly, that does work in most situations. It doesn’t work when you’re at the point where you nap whenever you have a free moment.
What to do?
Shake Things Up
I decided to shake things up and went on a road trip — stuffed my face with Texas barbecue and crawfish etouffee and walked along the gulf. It was like hitting the reset button. Now, to see if I can write!
Time will tell…but I did write this post. So there!
To start this New Year off, I’ll tell ya’ll a bit about my new story. It’s a multi-strand plotline with three POVs. I hear you asking, “Why would you do that to yourself?” The answer is simple. The story just dictated itself that way.
What is a multi-strand plotline you ask?
I had to do a reverse search to find out what I was writing was called. A multi-strand plotline is when there are two or more main plot lines. They often weave in and out of each other, coming together at the end. Now, to see if I can pull it off!
And now trip pics!
