In The Zone... And Then, Not So Much

I was there, in the writing zone. The ending of chapter six of my book has been eluding me. Today it all clicked. I found the words that conveyed the images in my mind perfectly. The characters were alive. They were moving and feeling and reacting exactly as they should.

Chapter six finally had it's ending with a perfect setup for flow into chapter seven. I was in the zone and ready to flawlessly continue the action into the next scene. And then....

Into the room walks my nine year old asking me to spend time with him.

So much for being in the zone.

Being a mom takes priority. So I stepped out of the writing zone and into the quality time with the kiddo zone. I can only hope to find my way back into that sweet, sweet place where the worlds flow like magic the next time I sit down at the keyboard to write.
