Writing is like . . .
Baking from a recipe in which the measurements and ingredients come only one at a time and you don’t know what you’re making.
Being lost; you’re not sure where you are but you know you’ll find your way home eventually.
A scavenger hunt. Just follow the clues.
Sinking into a bathtub with frequent temperature changes in the water.
The weather, with all its daily and seasonal changes.
Driving a bit fast on a dark, twisty road. With no headlights.
Having someone else feed you each bite of your favorite meal.
Stringing beads blindfolded and not seeing what you created until after you’re done.
A long conversation with a total stranger.
Waiting in line for hours for a ten-minute ride on an awesome roller coaster.
Waiting in the wings for your first public performance.
Navigating with a map full of holes.
The best sunrise after the longest night.
What is writing like for you?
