I spent seven months of this year working on the manuscript for Tell Me a Story. Throughout that stretch there were good times and bad times, creative feasts and creative famines. As a writer, there’s nothing quite like those good times, when the words flow and the ideas take shape on the page.
When I stumbled on this video today, I knew I’d found a fitting visual representation of what it feels like to hit your stride:
Do you thing. Do the work.
