j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

NPI: Day 4

Word Count: 456

Ok, so I'm frightfully close to the deadline tonight. I couldn't think of how I wanted the scene to work out. Then after talking to a friend, I realized I had to put to the written word what was really bothering me tonight. Once I worked that out, I was able to get some words to the page. Personal pain is important, even hard to deal with, but necessary to work through. Just like when I have a block, I just have to write through it. At least, that's what I hear works best and I hope that's the case.

A quote from Day 3:

More than he realized, he helped her too. She was too quiet to let this be known but her heart felt it. Secretly, she hoped that his heart felt what she couldn’t say. The few times that she had opened up would have to be enough for now. In time, things might be different.

Writing helps every feeling. The good, bad, and ugly all seem more manageable when confined to the parameters of 8 1/2 X 11.

Just wanted to let you know that I've given you an award at my blog, for being absolutely amazing!

Dude, do not feel bad about coming so close to the deadline. I kid you not, on Day 2 I was writing at 11:47pm! lol

Also, I definitely agree that writing through block is the best way to get through it. It's kind of what I'm doing right now and it sucks, but it does work.

On the plus side, I loved your excerpt!

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
