Doing what I want to do and what I really do, is often very different. It is easy to shut it down. Sleep. Veg in front of the tv. Listen to Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” or “Fell on Black Days” and sink into the darkness. Let dark hours become dark days that wash away cares and goals and opportunities.
Or I can call my black ninjas. Scrape together every ounce of creative energy, lift my mighty pen and write an unexpected exit out of the vortex. I can spew death and destruction on the forces standing in the way of my character’s arc and help him battle to the story’s climax.
Do the stories you write impact your mood?
Keep on writing.
