One by one, the "word birds" are flying out of their "prison".
A bit melodramatic to have a visual image of birds flying out of a cage to signify words bursting out of one's head to create a story, but to some degree it is true. Creativity is basically about letting go, setting one's mind free; in my case, it's about unlocking the words trapped inside me and setting them free so they can find their narrative destiny. For that matter, if one feels trapped in life, the only way to reach freedom is, perhaps, to fly away.
Enough of corny metaphors. The word count of my new novel now stands at 9123. 71,000 to go.
