On motivation...

I have often wondered what external stimulus has to do with writing. Last week was mostly spent in a lull and total block and moping around. Every word that came out of my head took immense time and effort. It was a total verbal constipation.
Then I got a letter in my mail. My story had been accepted for publication in Talking Stick vol 22.
I was on top of the world! After that words seemed to flow out of my fingertips.
I was amazed.
The Talking Stick of Minnesota
I didn't think blocks get unplugged by a letter.
But they did.
I'm still smiling.

Talking Stick Vol 22 will be published in September this year.
Here's a link to Vol 21.
