Break out the chorus of angels!

I wrote.

22 pages.

And now B is making dinner so I don't have to stop - and I didn't even ask him to. Apparently, the mental drought is over. Of the requested material, a full chapter just went out to my CP Shari for feedback and a lot of red ink. Now that I started again, I can't seem to stop. And I owe you all here for not giving up on me.

So a super special thanks to all of you here that put up with my whining and excuses and moaning of life in general, especially Allison and her scary boots, Chris and D, who probably know me the best and knew what to say to punch my ass in gear. Of course, I'm not 100% sure how well D knows me, since he refuses to tell me a name.

Also special thanks to Bryan Roth, evil poet extraordinaire, Dadio, Gary Brand, LE for his patience and unwaivering belief that I'll succeed, and MAF with his repeated attempts to shrink me. You guys rock.

I'd linger, but I'm being beckoned by a story to tell. Hee!

22 pages? *AWESOME*!!

I only wrote 16 the whole week, and most of that was cut and paste from graphs.

Well ... off to one of my blogs. Illegitimi Non Carborundum :)

22 pages,

Oh wow, that's not breaking out of your funk. That's crashing out of it. LOL.

This is so wonderful Brenda, I couldn't be happier for you. You're inspiring me.

Now that you've found your voice again, don't let yourself lose it.

Keep those pages rolling,

Theresa

That is wonderful... I could use 22 pages about now. I am afraid to see how much I wrote today. Of course, I wrote one restaurant review and did a bunch of other work related stuff, but still... I long for that sort of creativity!

I'm a little late, but WOO HOO on those 22 pages! I assume it's even more now...over 50 maybe? Keep writing while your muse cooperates.

Thanks, guys! It was a very, very good feeling, indeed! Of course, SINCE then, I haven't written any more, but I don't have that panicky feeling when I think about it like I did. That was such a frightening thought.

JBM ~ Uh huh. Riiiiiight.
