So I haven’t done any writing in a while – probably almost a month. I suppose I could feel guilty about that and worry that I’m not using my full talent. But the truth is that I’ve feel like I’ve been slowly building the fire of words in myself. I imagine my mind and spirit are full of dry kindling right now . . . pieces of experience and ideas that I’ve been setting aside for later. So I think when I get back to my writing practice, probably next week, I will have much to say and think about.

Do you folks ever feel this way, like you’re just storing up fuel for later? How do you do that? What happens when you start to write again?
