Leaned in.

This morning I noticed something going on in my head with all this leaning in I’ve been doing.

A pattern if you will.

During this time, my mental creative process becomes a literal mosh pit of wonderful ideas.

Not all of them about the Henry James piece I’m working on.

Creative Nirvana for sure.

So, I’m able to forge ahead with a couple more stories before my creative thought train goes totally jiggy on me and trundles down the rails only to disappear into the fog-laden sunset.


I’m talking about writer’s confusion.

It’s the story, duh. I’m confused as to which direction I’m going to go with a story. Am I going to conjur up another Henry James, or should I lead off with a series of silly or serious poems? Maybe I should write about writing. I love to do that. Oh, I wonder what song parody I can do next?

I’m so confused.
