What's the analogy for your writing life?

Recommended Posts

Today's blogpost from Killzone blog is a fun thought. So I thought we'd try ti. I'm still thinking on mine Here's the post...

 

“Life is like a box of chocolates—you never know what you’re gonna get.” — Forrest Gump

 

Describe your writing life in an analogy (or metaphor).

 

Are you flying high like Neil Armstrong? Or is your writing life more chaotic than a crazed killer with an ax?

 

What about your WIP?

 

Has your WIP stalled like a dirt bike low on gas? Or are you zipping right along like a flat stone tossed across lake water?

 

Your turn!

FIrst draft: My writing life is an escape from reality--like cleaning out the sheep house, washing dishes, brushing my teeth, or building an author platform.

My writing life with 3 kids is sometimes like someone learning to drive a manual transmission for the first time:

A lot of stops and starts 😋

 

My WIP is another sci-fi short story. My planning was like a meandering river, but I rocketed through writing the 1st page.

My writing life is like a walk in the mountains - lots of ups and downs,the occasional breathtaking view and refreshing stream, and a desperate curiosity to see what's over the next peak. 

 

I'm currently between projects, so that's more like driving in the mist. Not quite sure what the project ahead is, but getting a clearer idea of the project I left behind with each passing mile

My writing is like the broadcasts from ten different radio stations with ten children toying with the volume knobs. All the stories play out at the same time. I just try to catch one character of one plot and pin it down long enough to hear its tale before the others crowd in.

My writing is like speeding down a country road winding through a meadow, windows rolled down, trying to catch a butterfly with my left hand... while illegally texting with my right.

I am bored with the multi-day storms, so you get it gifs. 😁 

 

The plotting!

The start!

The realization that the plot is wrong and you're winging it!

The sword fight you love!

Realizing it is better placed in another part, but you liked it where it was.

Being given advice mid-tantrum.
