Langston Hughes said it best in A Raisin in the Sun.
A dream deferred.
I don't want my writing to be a raisin in the sun.
My writing has come in spurts this week. Too focused on writing a perfect first draft instead of just writing (my young adult novel).
I haven't been in the zone.
I was listening to a friend describe a very passionate conductor. He put his all into conducting. That's what I want to do with my writing. Put my all into it until swear pours out of every pore in my body and I lie spent, my work an emotional and visual force to be reckoned with, that leaves the reader amazed or stunned and wanting more.
To do that I have to let go of that final piece. That last door has to be unlocked and flung open.
Ok Lord, let's do this!
Dynamite that last door and let's show the world.
