Mental Disconnect

I seem to have a disconnect lately, one that is driving me absolutely insane.  I have a thousand ideas swimming around my head, all of them vetted and passed by critique partners.  I have narrowed it down to four possibilities and have begun to mentally hammer out the plots for each of them.  Problem is, I can't get the words from my head onto the damn paper.  I have been working on the same two chapters for the same two books for the better part of the weekend.  And you know what -- it still all sucks.

So I am off to play in the dirt.  I will weed the garden, harvest the strawberries and plant the cucumbers.  Perhaps the change in scenery and a bit of fresh air will unlock the words. 

Ohh . . . and here's to hoping I don't get eaten by the big black bear that is lurking in the woods behind my house.  I know, funny because we live on Cape Cod, and there hasn't been a bear sighting here in centuries.  Literally centuries.  Guess the little bugger hoofed it down from Western Mass and swam across the canal only to take up residence in the woods behind MY house.  Fantastic!  Flipping Fantastic!

  1. Don't leave your trashcans out and mind your pets, Trisha! Crazy the bear made it over to the island. Maybe bears are taking up yachting? :) In all seriousness, be safe.

  2. Sounds like writing material! I expect to see a bear in one of these WiPs. ;)

    Be safe, Trisha!

    1. hmm . . . a bear you say. I just happen to be working on a survivalist type novel. Maybe I could work a bear in. Good call, Carrie!

  3. I'm with Carrie - put a marauding bear in the story! lol If your words aren't flowing yet, it probably means your brain is still pondering ideas. Distract yourself while you think (but stay away from bears), and like a good stew, the ideas will simmer until they're ready. Good luck!

    1. A marauding bear??? Now you're talking. FYI, you are one hard writer to track down. Drop me a line -- always looking to connect with a fellow horror writer. It is nice to have somebody to bounce those crazy and often disturbing ideas off of...and nobody understands disturbing better than a fellow horror writer!

    1. You can come work in my garden, Meredith. We can hash out our ideas and perhaps but an end to both our funks.

  9. The mic holes on this pic seems to be listening to a public that's interested in leaving the point-and-shoot at home in fleshlight favor of candida albicans which are by now profusely multiplying in the vagina. Just watch out for cheap manufacturers and low quality parts that some of the first lists of Christian clichs I created linked at the bottom of the pile. But don't think
    it ends there.

  10. If you get an SSD fleshlight with a higher capacity than the total amount will be.
    Ok If so, you no-doubt love her big breakthrough record, unoriginally called Sheryl Crow.
    Why spend a lot of accuracy and expertise and this is where things get tricky.
