Days like this are few and far between.
This has been a good writing day. Not only have I written two posts for my blog, I’ve shot through the editing on Through the Gloaming, the second book in The Silver Flute Trilogy. I’m over halfway through and racing for the end at the speed of light. 😀
Despite having a great deal on my mind at the moment, I’ve found it relatively easy to keep writing consistently and it’s helped me to focus, something I haven’t been able to do for quite a while. That said, the minute I stop all the tumultuous thoughts currently occupying my mind come tumbling back.
Writing for me is a panacea, albeit it temporarily, for my woes. It takes me away into the worlds I’ve created, into realms of magic, mayhem and mystery.
I guess that’s what defines me as a writer of fantasy, the fact that I can create an escape route, which while it doesn’t always work, helps to hold back the tide of darkness that threatens to overwhelm us all, if we let it.
