“I turn sentences around.
That’s my life. I write a sentence and then I turn it around.
Then I look at it and turn it around again…”
— E.I. Lonoff
in “The Ghost Writer” by Philip Roth
That’s the glamorous life of a writer. Writing, revising, repeating. It’s also what I’ve been caught up in for the past five or so months … turning sentences around, then around again. I like to think I’m making progress, but sometimes I wonder. That’s another part of the glamorous life of a writer: Uncertainty.
The Monday Motivator is meant to motivate and inspire, but my commentary doesn’t seem very inspiring does it. In fact, it feels pretty negative. Maybe that’s why I turned to my blog today for the first time in months. This writer is in need of some blogosphere love. ❤ How about it folks? Lay it on me! Share a tip or trick you use to keep going when the words have turned you inside, outside and upside down?
