S.D. Skye's Hell or High Water 365-Day Blogathon Day 75 -- Craft Talk Thursday

Craft Talk Thursday -- Solving 9-to-5 Problems

First, can you believe I've now blogged 75 days in a row? 

I didn't think it was possible in my life...with my work sched
ule. Just goes to show that you can do whatever you set your mind to do and whatever you make the time to do.

Which brings me to writing Book 4.  I'm trying to get back my writing mojo in the midst of one of the biggest professional challenges in my career. My patience is being tested in ways it never has by anyone. 

So what do you do when your mind is so twisted with 9-to-5 drama that you can't focus on getting your story written? Kill your co-worker? 

Yes!!! You commit murder. 

That's exactly what you do. You make him a character and then you kill him dead as a doornail. So I'm sacrificing craft for catharsis. There probably will be a completely unnecessary death in my story and readers will see it and think "didn't see that coming." Well, when you see that you'll know exactly who I've whacked...and why. 

My craft will save me from a prison sentence. 

Don't you just love writing? 

It's all about sentence building...and yet it's "sentence" saving. 

See what I did there? 

I'm deliriously tired. Off to bed.  

We'll be having Free Fiction Friday tomorrow. I'm hoping to rope my next author into an interview next week.
