Pets Romance & Lots of Suspense | Linda O. Johnston | A Slice of OrangeI became a writer because I love to write.  A side attraction is that writers can write for their whole lives and never have to retire.

I began to question that a bit, though, over the last few weeks after I broke my knee.

Hey, you say, what does that have to do with writing?

Exactly.  But my creativity seemed to take a break for a little while, too, probably thanks to the exhaustion of healing.

When I sat at the computer and told my mind to get going, to begin plotting the next book, it rebelled, telling me to go take a nap and forget that I thought I had any imagination.  Ugh.  That wasn’t me.  Or was it?

I worried.  I stewed.  I napped.  I read other people’s books.  And I kept arguing with my mind.

And guess what!  My mind finally decided I was right after all.  It may be taking me a bit longer, but I’m plotting once more.  And soon I hope to actually start writing that next book.

So my advice to other writers?  Keep at it.  Writers do write, even if we sometimes have rebellious minds.  But we’re in charge and can ultimately direct those minds to get busy, even under unusual circumstances.

Now I just hope my mind stays on course, for now… and forever!

Oh, and by the way, my 8th, and possibly last, Alpha Force paranormal romance for Harlequin Nocturne, PROTECTOR WOLF, is a June release.  Enjoy!
