I'm cutting, snipping, placing, moving, attaching, shifting, asking others for input, piecing together larger finished products, connecting the squares of completed pictures, figuring out what I need to add, attaching the piece to a frame and looking at the final picture. The story is forming. The story is coming together one piece at at time.
My blog friends have responded with their own analogies. From their thoughts and with a few more ideas from me, I've come up with the following about writing.
Writing a BOOK is like:
1) Sewing a garment.
2) Knitting a sweater.
3) Cooking a gourmet meal.
4) Alterations of a dress to make it fit.
5) Packing for trip where the weather changes on a whim.
6) Driving to a new destination.
7) Building a house.
8) Painting a picture.
10) Finishing a 1000 piece puzzle.
What does writing a book feel like to you?
