More Encouragement for Writers

Hey ~ fancy bumping into you here.  How’s it going, man?  How’ve you been?  I haven’t seen you since we discussed your current work-in-progress over strawberry and banana split smoothies a while back!

Don’t remember?  I’m not surprised.  You had a lot of smoothies.  You told me about your project.  A project you don’t seem to be working on at the moment…

Seriously, man, what’s the deal?  You had an awesome thing going!  And you were so friggin’ excited.  Remember that one part you were telling me about?  The part you couldn’t wait to write?  Or maybe you already wrote it.  I don’t know ~ had a lot of smoothies too.  But I was really looking forward to reading that part.

If you don’t write it, how can I read it?  How can anyone read it?

I remember one point during our discussion where you said that this would be the best thing you ever wrote.  What happened to that?

You know what?  No problem.  Writers lose their steam from time to time.  Minor setback ~ it happens.  You just have to step away and regroup.  Let’s get you back to where the magic is, okay?  Tell me about your project again the same way you did over smoothies.  Tell me about that scene, or that character you really liked.

Actually, scratch that ~ talking about your project can zap inspiration, as I’ve mentioned before.  Why don’t you just write those parts you love so much?  Get it down on paper.  Or screen.  Remember that the world and myself are all patiently waiting to read this project you’ve been so excited about.

I have to go but let’s make another smoothie date, okay?  Same place, same time?

Chugged so many smoothies that you can’t even remember where or when we had them, huh?  *Sigh.*  Crap ~ me too.  Oh well.  We’ll meet up again.  And when we do, I wanna hear about all the progress you’ve made with this project.

Until next time…
