Have I mentioned I’m a tool junkie? Chain saw, power washer, detail sander. You name it. I’m a girl who’s not afraid to get her manicured nails dirty. These past few weeks, I put my gadgets to good use sprucing up my house and removing trees that decided to fall during a strong summer storm. What does all this have to do with writing? Good question.
Sometimes, I have to walk away from my Work In Progress to gain perspective. Garden, work on the house, cut up wood, read a book. Clear out the junk clogging up my garage and mind. This year, it took a dumpster and a donation truck, but there’s so much room now. And I have fresh eyes and a brush-clearing mindset for tackling the WIP. Time for more pruning.
