When I write, I really WRITE. Nothing can distract me. I will not allow it. It’s part of a vow I made years ago to my work, a vow I take seriously. When I’m involved in a project, as I have been since late April, I tend to disappear, both online and in person. Nothing is wrong—I feel fine. This is my process.
All I want is to get the words right.
Right now, everything I have goes into my work. (Details when it’s finished and out of my hands.) My loved ones will tell you that, when I write intensely, I have difficulty forming even simple sentences outside of the project. That’s when it’s much easier for me to speak through images. Seeing—trying to find the truth in what lies before me, trying to capture it faithfully—lets my mind recharge for the next day’s heavy writing.
Now you know. And I hope you’ll bear with these photo-rich posts a while longer. Eventually, I will return—along with my words.
Thank you, as always, for reading and following. You are the best.
P. S. It took me six days to write this.
