I'm Taking Baby Steps
Last week, on Twitter, I lamented that writing feels like I'm carving Mount Rushmore with toothpicks. And the more I thought about it, crafting new sentences has been a chore for about a month. I don't have the mean reds over lack of flow because what I'm laying down, I'm satisfied with. Case in point, yesterday, I conjured five sentences for an introduction to the Tom Paine book I'm finishing. Not brilliant but serviceable. Now, I will polish them off and see if I can turn the dial a bit farther. Like Bill Murray in What About Bob, I'm taking baby steps. It's working.
