Stasis

Stasis,

in literature, a state or condition in which there is no action or progress; static situation: dramatic stasis

I start these little narratives in my head every day.  Which is probably why I thought having a blog would be so great.  The problem is getting myself to stop what I’m doing and sit down and actually type out what I am thinking.

It’s not exactly like talking to myself (at least I hope not.).  It’s more like starting a conversation to nobody in particular, describing my current situation or what I am currently thinking about.  Then I usually proceed to discuss (again, with nobody in particular and certainly not out loud) what I want to write about, the direction I want to go with my novel, and what I last left my characters doing (which is waiting in stasis, as it happens, until I stop what I’m doing and write them out of the scene they are trapped in).

So, the problem is getting myself to stop what I’m doing and sit down and type out what I am thinking.  I just did that for this blog entry, now on to my novel.
