Across Tangential Fields


Even though I have shed convention, a firm hand must be kept on the reins.

“Feel Good Writing Ruts” are particularly dangerous for me.

Staying on plot, I’m rolling along when suddenly I get a little full of myself. Loving what I’m writing and how I’m writing it, the outline is scrapped in favor of a writing rush.

Off across the tangential fields, I fly, dragging my Cozy Mystery behind.

Bottom line: Reins may be bad for the free spirit image, but they’re essential to a successful story.

Until tomorrow…
