Sometimes the best thing you can do for your manuscript is LEAVE IT ALONE!
Instead of pounding my head against the wall, I ignored my WIP for an entire day and just read. Three novels later I feel rejuvenated!
Most of us write because we love a good story. But sometimes we (*clears throat* namely me) get so involved with our own work that we forget why we started it. I had to immerse myself in another author’s book to remember that I have a great story to tell and I know how to tell it.
Phew! Off to write with a bounce in my step (not too big of a bounce, it makes my belly do weird things).
Good luck in your writing today!
