Oh, you sweet thing. You are a new writer (or at least still fresh), in love with words and life and everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes. You are like Winona Ryder (Jo) in Little Women, scribbling away in her leather journal. Do all you can to stay in love - your best writing will come from your deepest feelings. Just remember to get your writing out of the journal and onto a manuscript. And don't forget to edit!

Uh oh! You are blocked. Like Emma Thompson in Stranger Than Fiction or Johnny Depp in Secret Window, your confidence is so low you've thought of wearing clothes that say "Writer" to prove - at least to yourself - that you are one. You need to snap out of it, and then relax. Right this minute, go put some real clothes on. No more slippers and pajamas. Comb your hair and put the slinky away. Then get back to your desk, take a deep breath, and write drivel for an hour without once pressing delete. Sooner or later, if you don't smoke yourself to death, you'll write something you love. I promise.

Oh no! You're worse than blocked - you are (in alphabetical order) aggravated, exacerbated, exasperated, frustrated, and in tears. You're afraid you'll never get to the promised land, and you're tempted to take it by force. Please don't do anything I'll regret. Nobody stole your story. Perhaps it's buried under too many words, or half-starved by too few. The benefit of being a Christian writer is that you know that frustration is normal and triumph a miracle. But miracles do happen if you keep on.

Hooray! You've arrived - or at least relaxed - as an author. You iron your shirts and polish your shoes, because you never know when you might give an interview or receive an award. Like Christopher Reeve in Somewhere In Time, you allow yourself a diversion - now and then. Just be careful, won't you? Don't forget to come back to us.

You're confusing me to pieces. Are you playing with my brains? Please put the gun down.
