Day 207 – Filling the Well
Do yourself a favor and hang out with supportive writers outside of critique group. Talk politics, indulge each other in story telling. I did that tonight. It’s been awhile since the last time. It makes you realize how tired you get of yourself and the stories you tell. After awhile, you forget the stories you work on are interesting because they lose their novelty. It’s refreshing to see someone take interest and say wow so you remember there’s still life in it.
Anyway, I need more of it, whatever the magic is that happened to night. Like people care and will continue to care about what I’ve got to say. As I settle in tonight, I feel at peace with writing. I haven’t felt this way in a long time.
