Thinking it’s dead doesn’t make it dead,,,

As I worked in my flower bed this evening I came upon a plant that I thought had died. It was all brown on top and just plain out looked horrible. I was getting ready to dig it up and throw it out, but under the dead, ugly top stems was beautiful lush green leaves. I sat back and grinned. I was glad because I loved that plant. 

Writing can be the same way. Sometimes you start out really into a story and it just totally dies. I had a couple of stories that this has happened to. I’d have a really strong feeling about it and then after a couple of chapters the vibe would totally leave me.

But the other day I had one of the stories wonder into my head. The more I thought about it the more I had to sit down and work on it. Well I added several chapters and and working on a finishing touch. Of course my editor is going to strangle me because I have a couple of manuscripts that need to be finished and I’m polishing them up as we speak. 

So, my point is this, if you have a manuscript that you’ve had to put down because of lack of interest, don’t throw it out. Just put it out of sight for a little while and it may come back to you. I feel that any story that comes to you is important and meant to be written. It just needs a little tender loving care. Maybe it only needs a little pruning 🙂

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
