Writer Frustrated

Why are the manuscripts that look simple when finished almost always the hardest to arrive at?

Why is the approach that elicits an “Aha, that’s so simple!” so damned difficult to get to?

Makes doing some mindless chore like washing the dishes seem so much easier: apply water and soap and voila--desired result.

Yep, off to tackle the mountain of dishes left from yesterday.

Whatever the answer to those questions, I have to say that at least it makes that "Aha!" moment so much sweeter!

But in truth, sometimes doing the dishes (or another mindless chore) helps me arrive at that moment. Maybe because it takes the pressure off my brain and allows my thoughts to flow freely.

Very true, Rebecca. The chores are piling up so here's to me getting a very sweet aha moment soon. :>
