I have been WRITING!!! Seriously! I'm so excited! I haven't written for over a year and today... almost a complete short fic! I could cry I'm so happy!
Admittedly, some of the dialogue was written during one of my Muse's fickle visits a little while ago, but that was just dialogue. All the filler/head stuff happened today.
I cannot express how sweet it feels. I love my art, love drawing quite passionately. It has a calming effect on me like nothing else does. But that has always been a talent I was prepared to prostitute, if you know what I mean. I could draw what someone asked me to draw and not get all precious about it.
But writing is the one thing I have always been determined to do just for ME. So you can imagine how frustrating not having that 'one thing for myself' has been.
I know the conditions are perfect - moon's waxing, I'm fertile, but there's been a lot of that and still no writing. That maybe all I get for this month (or several), but at least the drought has broken.
