A Surprise

A surprise. That’s truly what it feels like sometimes. This is the Best kind of writing. Sometimes the words just flow from my head to the page. What ends up on the page is as much a surprise to me as it is to you! I sit back and wonder, “Wow! Where did that come from?” The end result is a rush. A high. My drug of choice.

Does this kind of thing happen to you?

  1. Oh, yes, Penny, this happens to me. And when it does, you get that rush you explain. This is why we love writing so. The satisfaction that comes in creating, that moment when you feel/understand that you’ve written something pretty incredible.
