Hermit Grumbling

Sleep On It

Whether it is about writing or life, my best advice when you can't get something done is to sleep on it.  I was writing last night and the scene was going but plodding along.  I wanted sharp, witty, argumentative.  I'll read what I wrote and decide if that is how it turned out but I … Continue reading Sleep On It
