There are days–sometimes just moments–when the problems of a manuscript start to be solved one by one, and the author has this distinct feeling of playing one of those sharpshooter carnival games, knocking down one target after the next. A quick succession of ping, ping, ping, ping.
That’s this weekend. It feels like victory, like a turning point. There’s doubt mixed in too. But that’s expected.
It’s been a weekend full of prayer, journaling, strategic research, and thoughtfulness. Very little time with the actual manuscript, a lot of time with my process journal.
There will be more problems to solve soon enough. But for today, I am reveling in the ones that have solutions.
And I’m excited to write!
