After I rewrote WiP4 to pen and paper, I decided to spend an unexpected couple of hours writing it. And I wrote... half an A5 page.
At first I thought it was because I didn't have an Internet connection. That I suffered from withdrawals.
But while I can't rule out the possibility, I think there's something else at fault.
When I first decided to start on this story, I'd been revising for about two weeks. Now I've been revising for about two months. Almost non-stop.
So it's a very real possibility that my internal editor is so active (for very good reason) that the creativity of drafting takes a back seat.
And that makes me wonder. I'm surely not the only person trying to write and edit at the same time. But at the same time, I have no idea how I'm supposed to do both.
I mean, I've never gotten as far as edits before. But I know that some of my bloggy friends have. So now I ask:
How do you kick-start creativity after spending time on edits?
