Heart leaping, racing faster than my hand can keep pace. Write faster, Marnie, or you’ll lose the amazing thoughts and descriptions flowing from within. Oh, how to make these words come faster?
Excitement when what begins to be revealed on the page precisely describes the events, people, and feelings unfolding in my mind.
Fear that I cannot sustain a) the pace or b) the quality of the content. What if I get blocked? Can’t find the words? Or worse yet, lose interest?
But then a metamorphosis occurs. Pen, which was feverishly pushing to capture the thoughts, suddenly stops…it is finished! A butterfly emerges from its cocoon, stretching its beautiful wings and proudly fluttering about, shows off its wondrous transformation.
