The click, click, click of the wheels cutting across the tracks.
Higher and higher until hanging at the crest of the peak.
Flying, stomach dropping, lungs screaming.
Back into dark tunnels, sharp corners, unexpected turns.
Until the end is reached. The ride has finished. Leaving me breathless and wanting more.
I don't know about you, but this has been my journey as a writer. Sometimes the tunnels feel too dark and I don't know if I can keep writing. But that's why I have my writing friends. To encourage me and keep me from giving up.
Then there are other times I'm standing on the peak and I don't want that feeling to ever end. But it's during those times that my writing partners are there for me, cheering me on.
How about you? Have you ridden any roller coasters lately?
