Do you know that feeling you get when you’re in the zone? You’ve stepped inside your main character’s world and swam through its tumultuous and rhythmic waves, quenching your thirst in the emotions and conflicts, joys and discoveries of your characters.
Your fingers agilely stamp the keys, and the words soar across the page like a plane boasting its fluttering banner streaking through a clear, azure sky.
Ideas, colors, imagination, romance, twists, banter, sensations, explosive climaxes, and redemptive resolutions fall like confetti inside your depthless mind. You sweep them all into a bundle of joy and sprinkle them on the white pages on your story.
Nothing outside this make believe world exists while you’re in the zone. You saver this moment of complete dedication, imagination, and concentration. Little more than a nuclear bomb could shake you out of this realm.
But when you emerge smiling, mind clear as glass and heart swelled twice its size, you know writing fiction is your destiny.
Capture this moment again and again by reading over your work in progress’s chapters. It fuels the creative flame inside of you.
