Have you ever come up with a storyline so compelling that you are afraid to write anything else for fear that you might lose the fire? Of course, you know what I mean by fire. It's that feeling you get that makes you feel as if something inside you will break of you don't write it. This a great feeling...a compulsion that is good. So, you get this feeling and you want it to last until the story is complete, resolved, at rest. Right?
But...you do have a life. Work, family, adult responsibilities and these things get in the way.
What do you do to keep the fire burning?
One of the things that I did was begin this blog. It forces me to keep writing, make time, sacrifice the effort, and look for my characters in different situations, places, times.
