The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers…
February 25, 2012
I’ve spent the first two months of this year (Really? Two months already? Wow.) revising a couple of stories and writing a proposal for a couple of books. According to my work calendar for the year, next week I begin work on some new short fiction. And I can’t wait.
When I go for too long without writing something new, I get grumpy, or morose, or both. I sink into myself in an unhealthy way, and I’m not all that pleasant to be around. Now, before January, I had gone a long, long time without taking a break from writing, and that can be a bad thing, too. We writers can be a difficult bunch — things have to be just so. Write too much without rest and I find myself getting burned out, and by the end of last year I was feeling a bit crispy around the edges. But if we write too little . . . well, as I said, I’m getting grumpy.
So on Monday I start writing again. And like bouncing for Tiggers, writing is really what I do best.
