Calvin & Hobbes

Now where did I put my laptop?

I've had a lot of changes in my life since last October--a lot. Regaining my focus and my ability to throw myself into the world I'm writing and lose myself in it . . . has been difficult. I know what I want to write, I'm excited to write it, yet why is it all stubbornly sitting in my brain while the rest of my mind wanders the world? (Or the Internet)

I'm told that with the amount of changes in my life, and the type, that this is only natural. Well, I think that there comes a time when all that needs to be laid to rest and life resumes. Life is good. Now let's get busy.

Where I'm going with this:  when you have experienced dramatic changes in your life, what do you do to get yourself back on The Path? Certain rituals, behavior modifications, put a different shoe on each foot? Any and all advice is so very welcome!

Your favorite character description from YOUR manuscripts

James Lee Burke is a god of writing. He has the most amazing ability to describe anything and anyone without coming across as that's what he's trying to do. I would love to have that gift! It made me think about how we FFF writers describe our characters and how much fun it would be to share that.

Everyone describes their characters differently. This is a little hard only in that you have to choose *one* from all of your characters--and likely search through your manuscripts! Put a comment to this post and show us your description and tell us why it's your favorite.
