But creating a book requires time and space. Not physical space, exactly, but an open space in your mind. It can be hard to switch from the chatter of online social media to the still place inside my brain, inside my heart, where I can best conjure. Often, it's the still times I enjoy the best. I love the creation process, I love creating story. It's why I started down the writing road in the first place.
It's easy to get caught up in the chatter--and moving between online presence into the heart of story sometimes feels like I'm balancing a ping pong ball on the end of my nose. For me, it's one of the big challenges of this writing life, learning to balance it all.
