Why the Seahawks win is like writing…


The Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl.

Not writing news, but I was struck by how the Seattle player caught that ball on the last play and wouldn’t let go of it. I mean, he held onto it like it was a pot of gold.

It hit me that’s what I needed today to get going on my WIP. A 112,000 word Civil War Time Travel Romance that is driving me crazy.

I need to hold onto that m/s and not give up. Believe I can come from behind like the Seahawks did today and win.

It’s a tough game out there with everybody coming at ya. Trying to make every word perfect, every historical battle accurate, every kiss memorable.

But I can do it. You can do it. Because we’re tough.

We’re writers.
