When I’m writing, I know I’m in the zone when I start to picture scenes in my head in the middle of the night. I have very clear visions of action unfolding, complete with dialogue and jokes. That’s a good thing and a bad thing, of course.
Bad thing: I’m lying awake and not getting sleep.
Good: I can’t stop thinking about the project and I’m in the zone.
That happened last night. I completely re-imagined two scenes I’d worked on earlier in the day. Now that the kids are off to school, the dog has been walked and I’ve had my third cup of joe, it’s time to Do The Work.
How do you know you’re in the zone? How do you push through even if you’re not in the zone but still need to get the work done?
off to write..
Embracing my chaos, Lian
