Writer’s Wait

PocketwatchI’m suffering from a serious case of Writer’s Wait.

It’s not quite the same thing as writer’s block. I could write any number of things. But the project I want to write doesn’t feel quite ready to be written.

Sure, I could explain this in a number of ways. I just lost my Grandma Hazel, my last connection to that generation in my family – and that has taken an emotional toll. There’s also the time toll – preparing the slide show and the eulogy for the ceremony, the actual time spent flying to Tucson and spent with family.

Then there’s my usual “day job” work load. And throw in the holidays to boot.

But it’s more than that. There’s something that still feels a little half-baked about the story – something I still need to work out in my head before the floodgates will open and the story itself will pour out.

So my questions for you today – have you as a writer experienced this waiting feeling? How did you move past it? And what was it all about, in retrospect?
