Oh, my gosh! I am working on some amazing things right now. I have about five stories all coming together. It’s fantastic. This is when it’s so nice to be trusting the process and following the flow.
I give it a week and it’ll probably go crashing down.
It’s not that I’m being pessimistic or anything like that, I just understand cycles. I often say that there is balance in all things. What many people see as duality (good/evil, light/dark, happy/sad, thin/fat, life/death, like/dislike, etc.), I actually see as circles. It is never day, then suddenly night, no matter how we feel like it is that way. There is a gradient as we go through sunset, then again at sunrise as night becomes day. We are never happy, then sad — again there is a decline, other thoughts intruding, etc. until we feel sad. We are always on some position within that cycle.
So, I know that when the story is working well, it won’t last forever. There will come the times when I want to pound my head on the desk in frustration.
But, I do wish for the impossible still. I wish the reader could be right there with me at this moment of creation, that point where the magic happens. It, of course, can never happen. I must always be ahead on the path. Still, I wish…
