I'm doing the housekeeping part of writing and querying. I'm compiling a list of agents to send queries to. I'm polishing short stories.
Because the work never stops. There's always more writing to do. More work to do.
But sometimes you don't want to walk away. Sometimes you want to face the challenge head-on and say, "This isn't writer's block. This is fear of what I actually have to say." So you sit down, and you write. You rewrite. You keep rewriting until you're ready to give up entirely because how many more times can you try to make this scene work?
Let's take five minutes and focus on that moment.
