I have to recommend any book that says you have to spend time dreaming most days. Terry Brooks\’ Sometimes the Magic Works is like Novel Writing 101 about the mindset it takes to write a novel. Or maybe I just admire him because he writes huge honking novels AND they get published. He freely admits that had he started writing recently, his earlier stuff wouldn\’t cut the mustard. But he is in his sixties and still learns and used his imagination. How many sixty year olds still do that? It doesn\’t take much imagination to pull the slot machine handle, which is the family legacy I have.
But so much of my writing time this week has been re-visioning some of my key scenes. I\’m hoping to get this all done by the end of April and I really think I\’m on track. Then on to bigger and better things. Right?
