|SCHOOL, FAMILY AND BLOGGING :)
I love September, it's the time of mellow fruitfulness and the new school year.
Don't you love school? I think it's great! School is the one place the kids can go... even when it's raining ;)
The good news is I have, finally, proved to my partner that he spends more time running his football (soccer) club than I do on the various essentials involved in my writing.
Now the bet has been won, and the pattern of my life has resumed, I will be able to write my blog posts. During the weeks I was unable to post regularly, I realised how much time I have been spending on the blog - oops *blushes ;)
Paying more attention to my work, family, and life balance, I will be posting on this blog on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
Now I’m sleeping more regularly, I’ve taken to waking up with ideas that seem totally inspired. Depending on how quickly it disappears, I write down the idea, character, setting, phrase or word, convinced that in the morning I will be able to conjure them into fully-original masterpieces.
What usually happens is in the brighter light of morning my incoherent scribbles couldn’t translate into a word document let alone a Carnegie/Greenaway Medal.
Even more frustrating is when the scribbled almost-something blurs to the point where I can’t recognise it any more.
Creativity is hard to capture between commas and the odd full-stop. It is not logical, uncontrollable and wilful it hates to be tamed.
When I write, I want to see the page invaded by dramas of soap-opera dimensions – long lost family members, life-and-death situations, aliens and the paranormal.
What do you want to write?
