Writing About Writing

Sometimes writing is like singing a song. One line flows easily into the next one with a subtle melody linking them together. You can feel a rhythm in the dialogue and hear the drum beats in the narrative.

Other times, writing is like finding diamonds in the dark. You’re reaching out, fumbling for the right words, reading the same lines over and over – trying to figure out why they don’t sound right. Then you find the perfect words and you see a glint of beauty.  You fix those errant lines and they sparkle bright.

No matter how hard or easy it is to get those words on the page, you keep on doing it. So that someone else can hear your melodies and catch a glimpse of the diamonds’ glow.
