The Writing Process: after you press the Approve button

“There’s nothing I can say, a total eclipse of the heart.” Bonnie Tyler, Total Eclipse of the Heart

Being a published Author was like that for me. I didn’t really know what to say. Go me? I rock? Those were all things I could have said, but I didn’t have any words, and didn’t know how I felt.

When I pressed that great big Approve button, I needed another project. I don’t like it when things are finished. I’m happy my book is out, but I need to write another one. Just like in the song, I think writers probably feel different every time we “turn around.” I suppose it’s good for creativity, but can be a bit of a roller-coaster ride. I hope it won’t stop you from writing a book. Grab your keyboard or a pen, “and we’ll only be making it right.” (It took all my willpower not to misquote and put “write!”)
