Pre-writing writing

May 18, 2006Find joy today, Write!

I’m going through writers’ purgatory right now, banging my brain against plot ideas swirling around my head like an emptying toilet bowl.

I’m trying to do the Mary-impossible: plot something before it’s formed in my mind. I’m so dang bad at it, I want to SCREAM! I know, I know. I need to go over to Randy’s website and start snowflaking.

So what to do? I’m going to pray. Perhaps the Lord will drop a plot in my wee brain as one of His many graces to me. Or maybe this is one of those times I sit in my chair and hack it out, word by word, idea by idea. Or maybe I should retire and move to Jamaica!
