Feel the Burn

30 days into a new exercise regime. Do you feel the burn?

Writing isn’t just like exercising – it is exercising. The more you write, the more you create the better you feel – you get that euphoric writer’s high (okay a lot of the time that’s the caffeine talking, but there is something to be said for writing regularly.

I know I feel better when I’m creating and it puts me in a place unlike the rest of the universe – a place where I’m in control.

Of course, control is a relative thing because I swear sometimes my characters have minds of their own and have been known to wake me up and want to talk to me about this scene they feel really strongly about.

That’s when I know I’m getting somewhere because they’ve become real at least for the time I’ve got them on the page. All I know is, I’m getting into the groove and I want to write some more.
