Here’s a fun exercise to stretch your mind and use up brain cells. Try writing one l-o-n-g sentence that creates an image or shares a cohesive idea.
Yesterday I sat waiting for the doorbell to ring which meant my books arrived and I’d hold the early copies in my hands and then rush to the phone to call Linda and share the news that I’d finally completed 84 Ribbons, book one in my trilogy/ writing cycle which started as an overnight idea when I couldn’t sleep so I sat in my living room and let Marta’s story ooze out of my brain so I’d have something to take to Lauraine’s advanced writing workshop in Tehachapi, California the following month to start my first decade of writing, editing, straining to hear my character’s tell their stories through me and push me to record their wishes for others to read and appreciate while exposing their private lives to the world across hundreds of pages and three books about the world of ballet mixed with real life, heart ache, injuries, love, loss and the tenacity to endure each new road block, knowing the stage lights wouldn’t last but the lessons they and I learned are long lasting.
