Thoughts from the Grave

I've been staring at a blank Word document for ten minutes. The words for this story aren't even in my head, nevermind on the page. I know this story better than anything else--- know what I want it to do for me. And yet (and yet) the writing is hard.

I haven't written actual words in forever. I've written things in Korean (안녕하세요!) and in text messages, but not for rizzle WORDS. 

You know what I mean, I think. The kind that knit worlds. That start revolutions and raise the dead. That build castles and save the day. 

3,000 words. Over the past seven days, I've attempted to spin 3,000 of these words. And it's a start--- I have started--- but it's hard. It's. Hard. 

It's hard to jump back into writing when you've been neglecting the craft. It's hard to jumpstart something that's sat and festered and idled forever and a day. 

It's hard. But nothing is impossible. So I'm writing, or at least trying to. Although I'm not sure when MV will be a THING, I know I'm going to get it there. You guys helped me through PW. Here we go again. 



  1. you can do it Deserae! You can still cultivate your talent. And writing is meant to be hard, if it were easy, everybody would be doing it. Only the strong survive.

  2. I know the feeling. I share the feeling. And I know it's overcome-able, and your resolution is just right (: All the best ♥
