Castaway is one of my favorite movies of all time. I love the ending scene (above) where he's trying to figure out where he's going.
That's kind of how I'm feeling lately.
I was so completely focused on getting my book finished so I could submit it.
I know that I now need to do a major re-write.
I sat at the computer last week looking at the first page.
I stared and stared.
I changed one sentence.
Then I turned off my computer.
I feel like my life has stalled. I'm in the middle of the road.
I know where I want to go, but no longer think I know how to get there.
Maybe some time on a deserted island would get the creative juices flowing.
Maybe I just need a kick in the pants.
