That’s what I have been doing all my life! I have been steeping. Marinating, if you will. I have been marinating in books, stories, essays, films and plays all of my life! And this year, as with many before, I am confident will be my year to produce much work. Perhaps even succeed in being published! But as my daughter has reminded me, not so long ago I spoke of my newest truth: I write easily when I am writing for myself. It is when I think of what others will say about my work that I shut down.
So to write. The thinking will come with the editing. You know what I mean. 🙂
