When it comes to writing, I think I’m bipolar.
The worst time is when I’m in between projects. Ask Steve. I’m bitchy, melodramatic, tired all the time, and basically no fun to be around.
The best time is when I’m working on something new. Ask Steve. I’m smiley, energetic, and a whole lot of fun to be around.
There is no in between.
The first draft of my new book is racing along merrily, and right now I could not be happier. Everything around me is full of color and life. Not even the constant noise from the construction crews building new houses on our street can aggravate me (and three weeks ago, I was ready to take their salsa-blaring, bass-thumping ghetto blasters and shove them up their asses. I like salsa, but not so much at seven in the morning).
I’m going to enjoy the good mood while it lasts. When I hit the mid-book slump, these posts won’t be so pretty. Fair warning.
Have a great weekend!
