Snippet Sunday

A bit of a cheatery snippet.  Not written this week, but this is what you get:

The sapient straightened her legs. Her lips quirked up as if she sought to summon a comforting smile, but her expression fell. “You are worth too much to harm.”

“Worth what to who? My mother is nothing now. I’ll never be anything. I have no sresoqo.” Growling in frustration, [Lelo] raked her nails across her song sacs. Pain shot up through her face, tears flooding her eyes. Gasping, she dropped her hands and rocked forward, the pulsing agony in her neck making her head swim and her stomach churn.


I really want to write again on one level, but on another, when I think about writing, I've got nothing. I tell myself that it is normal; I'm still processing so much New! and Strange! But, but...can I just get on with that already and have my writer brain back now?

I say just write what you can, even if it is merely a sentence here and then it should come back to you.

This is an awesome snippet, even if it's not this week's writing.

Regarding writing, maybe try totally different writing for right now? Like blogging, just notes, whatever. Your writing brain is definitely still here; you're just providing it with so much future fodder right now. The stuff you're living is going to make all your stories that much richer (regardless of whether you use the specific surroundings and events in stories or not)--you wouldn't want to miss out on drinking in that richness as deeply as possible.

Poor Lelo!

Well, I think your writer brain will come back when it's ready, perhaps with a vengeance.

And I agree that you shouldn't try to turn your back on what's going on in your real life, but rather let your writer brain mine it for future stories.

i agree completely!!! You may not be "writing" as on paper, but your mind is storing facts and scenes and aromas you may never encounter again. Live them, love them and enjoy them. The writing will come.
