Flowing and Flinging

It is so tempting, when you’re in the flow of words, to hurry up and present your offerings as fast as they are spinning through your mind. It is such a glorious feeling that you can almost step out of your body and watch your fingers fly. Then you press the “publish” button before cursorily proofing your online work, which may or may not have a typo or two or more. Man, it’s the pits, when there is a boo-boo! I’ve had a few, which made me cringe, and I’m really trying to slow myself down. The deadline is my own, so what’s the rush?

Flow is definitely a WOW experience, filling your soul with happy sighs, but you should never fling into public anything that will make your readers flinch with embarrassment for you. Just because your thoughts are flowing like a freight train, does not mean your tracks will be debris free.

About Cyranette

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealology, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 18 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.
