Writing chaos is that time in a writer's life when you have stories in your head--lots of stories, but none of them seem to be coming together. I've been making crazy notes about Sarah's story--the next book in the Women of Willow Bay series. I've got conversations between Tim and Hallie in my head, and I'm plotting my cozy mystery, which is going to be blast to write if I can ever get it started.
But here's the thing. I'm mostly writing in my head. I write while I'm doing dishes, while I'm weeding, while I'm folding laundry. Scenes, conversations, descriptions of people are all bashing around in my mind while I'm doing other things. But when it comes to sitting down at my computer and actually writing . . . well, right now, I'm not. And I'm wondering if it's because I'm sorting through stories, working on discovery. Or if I've lost my storytelling mojo.
I'll keep you posted . . .
