To tell you the truth, good writing days often sneak up on me. I don’t usually plan out long blocks of writing time. I just kind of fall into them if a thought hits or a story blooms. My husband can attest to that because he knows what’s up if I say, “Oh, I’m on a roll.”
A good writing day is when my busy day lightens enough for me to spend a block of uninterrupted hours sitting in my patio lounge chair with my computer on my lap and my two dogs at my feet.
A good writing day is when I get lost in my characters. Cry with them. Mourn with them. Laugh with them.
A good writing day is when I finish an action scene and my heart is pumping like I just experienced it.
A good writing day is when I finish writing, I feel that much closer to God.
In the end, it doesn’t even matter if I get a ton of words done. It’s just the shear joy of sitting with a warm computer on my lap and using God’s gifts to create fun and exciting worlds for a little while.
So, what’s your “Good Writing Day?” And if you’re not a writer, what do you consider “A Good Day?”
