Celebrate the Small Things


http://viklit.blogspot.co.uk/
Today is my first blog to Celebrate the Small Things.  To learn more about this blog celebration click on the link.

Well let me get started. If you've read my last post then you know I've been in writer's limbo. For the past week I've sat edgily at the computer and written a sentence here or a paragraph there. Debating daily on how to end my wip and it's been driving me crazy.
Needless to say after toiling in the gardens, and adding a little elbow grease to my much neglected housework, I let my brain take a breather. 
And behold--less than an hour ago a solution bumped around in my head. Hurrah!!!
Now to compose the ending before it flits away from my overtaxed brain, and then I'll be ecstatic! 
So this Friday I'm celebrating a small accomplishment with a long way to go.

  2. Isn't that the best feeling when the ending or solution to a tough scene comes after struggling with it?

    I think we always have it somewhere in our brain but it gets hidden underneath all the other stuff and it just takes some time to find it's way through the clutter to where we can see it. Doing something else for a day or two always work for me too. Good luck

  5. Congrats on breaking the writer's block! I know, it can be a serious pain. I find the same thing...riding on my husband's motorcycle or riding the jet ski always seems to do the trick for me! :)

    1. My daughter had a motorcycle, but I really don't want to ride with her, at least not until she's more experienced. It definitely would clear the head. Thanks for visiting my blog, Jen.
