"A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people." - Thomas Mann
I got my latest cover:
I have to admit to not being terribly enamored of it -- it took me a while to figure out what the picture portrayed. And, since I know the story, that was a bit disconcerting. I've decided that the picture is of a beach volleyball game (something that features in the story) - that little black dot in the center is the ball, the streak across the middle is someone diving for the ball and the other silhouettes are the other players.
Still, it's always nice to see my name on something! AND I haven't even started the edits on it, and the covers already done, so someone is really on the ball.
Writing has been a struggle the past few days. It's as though I have to pull every word from some odd mix of half-set epoxy. I write, because I must, but it's not coming easy. That's terribly frustrating.
It's not because I don't like what I'm working on -- I do. I like both the new WIP and the novel I'm editing. It's not because I can't find the time -- though time does seem like a more precious commodity lately. It's not even that I don't want to write. I do! But, wow is it ever a chore.
I suppose that's just the way it is sometimes. If writing was easy, everyone would do it.
