Thanks you, Phyllis. Unfortunately, I think the “dark place of the soul” will be a reoccurring detour. Maybe it’s just the writer’s personality I possess, but sometimes I just feel dark.

I hate my own dark tendencies, as well. I really hate that my best work is done from a dark place, but I guess you can’t choose the nature of the beast!

Deena, your comment is incredible. You expressed what I feel, what I live. Whatever that is…”my best work is done from a dark place,” I relate, boy do I relate.

Thanks Thedesertrocks, the thought that there might be others who have those “dark nights of the soul” made the act worth my squirming.

Like we write until our creative juices flow puhing out character’s souls through pen onto paper.

Shelly, I like the way you put that: “Like we write until our creative juices flow puhing out character’s souls through pen onto paper.”
Sometimes the squeeze of my soul moving through that pen onto paper is painful…kind of like a birth.
