I Got a Creative Spark Today

Great ideas that come up while you’re not expecting them are the greatest gift ever. As writers, we could be staring at a blank screen for hours one day and then the next day during our usual editing session an amazing idea pops in like a bolt of lightening. Let me tell you how it happened.

Today was a nice day but my little one wasn’t feeling well. So I gave her a lot of attention to make sure she was hydrated, fed, and loved. I need extra love when I’m sick so I try to make sure my babies (not so baby anymore) get extra love when they’re sick too. So when she settled in to watch Ratatouille, I figured I’d get some writing done. While I was reading along trying to get to the section jotted down on my to do list, I took time to appreciate a scene that involved a book shelf (of course a book shelf they’re magical all on their own) and bam there it was, the idea, as if it were waiting there for me to find it. lol No, I’m kidding. It was more like an interesting exchange of my own internal dialogue that led me there. However it happened, it made me happy.

Most nights are not creative additions at this point in the editing process. It’s been more “technical” based. Expanding on certain ideas and making sure details are consistent and placed properly on the timeline. Which is why getting a creative spark tonight was so fun and exciting for me.

I had share.

I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
