This…THIS Is Why I’ve Been So Upset Lately

A friend of mine had a status update yesterday that summarized in twelve words why the past month and a half without my writing voice has been such a miserable time for me:

It’s when I am [writing] things that I remember who I am.

Yes. That. Perfetto.

    I love re-reading a section of older writing, one that cost emotionally, to get right back to the feelings that inspired it in the first place.

    • Amen.

      I find sometimes that when I go back and reread the very first incarnation of a story or a scene, I find something that got lost along the way in revisions and shifts in the plot. A rawness, an emotion, the thing that…made me want to write it down to begin with. Those moments are second only the flashes of inspiration themselves.
