The Writer Is IN

Writers often know when they meet another writer before any words are ever spoken. When you see someone you know who is a writer or you attend a book signing or a writer is invited to your book club, there may come a quiet moment when the writer is just staring out into the distance. That's when the writer is IN.

  • In a trance
  • Lost in space
  • In a world of her own making
  • In a fog because that last plot point doesn't quite gel
  • In a tizzy because the characters are totally not behaving the way she expected
  • Listening in on a conversation between two of her characters
  • In a personal quiet zone because she's tired from all the chaos in her head
  • In a panic because she can't remember what she's making for dinner
  • In touch with her muse
  • Writing a scene in her head
  • Going to be in trouble if she doesn't find a title before Monday

Hope you have a fabulous September!

See you in October.

Yup! All of the above for me...I just can't do them while driving.

I was nodding my head at all your points :)
Jemi Fraser said…
Oh, yeah!!!
In a tizzy is most currently appropriate in my world!
Smiling - though many of those points apply to this reader as well.

I was agreeing with everything you said.
I guess I'm always in trouble since I can never think of a title...

I'm glad all you writers found something to relate to :)

Happy to hear from you, Jo-Anne. Your blog is great, so you're a writer, too :)

LOL! I think I spend my entire week in a panic.

We're all very different but still very much alike :)
