What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Real talk: I have had the worst writer’s block of my life since April. I think it started with turning my final manuscript in. I spent years bouncing this story around in my head, trying to think of new ideas. I would hear a song on the radio and my first thought would be that a certain character would love that song. I would wake up in the middle of the night and ask myself what their favorite fruit was, what they were afraid of, what they wanted out of life.
And then I sent in the final manuscript, and all of that was over.
Except, it wasn’t.
I still assign songs I hear to these characters. I still dream in book scenes. The only difference is, that story is over. It’s been started and finished and printed. And while that is wonderful, it’s made it extremely difficult to do any sort of new writing.
And then this week, the lovely ladies at Litfuse tweeted this image:
And just like that, I want to write all the words, ever, all the time.
Because those are my words. Those words are in my book. And seeing them typed out so beautifully like that? It makes me want to write more.
So here’s to new writing adventures. Cheers to new stories, new blog posts, new ideas and words that dance in your head until you absolutely must get them down on paper.
