This familiar signpost from MASH, now at the Smithsonian Museum of American History spoke volumes to the show's characters about how far they were from home. I feel like that this morning - I can see the signpost and the direction I need to take to get my book in print, but I'm far, far from there. The work required to get there feels overwhelming. It's THERE and I'm HERE.
Before I can do the necessary editing and revising, a focused plan has to be developed. By me. And my protagonist Sophie, who I created and I know well, has been mute about my intended plans thus far. Which is why I'm wearing the T-shirt Michael gave me for Christmas. It says, "Writer's Block: When your imaginary friends won't talk to you."
