It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
But, there's still a certain beauty in the madness of it, and I wouldn't change that beauty for anything.
Sometimes I notice the same thing in my writing. The nice, organized plan I start with can become messy and muddied--even cluttered somewhere in the middle. That box of ornaments you forgot about is very much like the character you never planned on. But if you refuse to give it a chance, you'll never see how beautiful it can look on the tree.
I love the messy madness of my writing process. It may take a little clean-up afterward, but I wouldn't have it any other way. How about you? Is your writing process as neat & tidy as your Christmas decorating?
