In keeping with the A-Z theme that’s running around the blogosphere right now, today’s post begin with the letter L, which in this case stands for love what you do.
Pretty simple in theory. I mean, that’s why we spend as much time with our stories as possible right? We love them.
But what happens when we don’t love them as much, or, worse, not at all. Sometimes we have to let those stories go. Maybe not forever. I don’t delete anything. I still have a file cabinet full of stuff typed on an old-fashioned typewriter from back in the day. I save it all because you never know when the magic might come back. But in the meantime I have to devote myself to what moves me or figure out a way to make it move me.
How do you sustain the love for your story? What do you do when the magic’s gone?
