A Writer's Journey

Today I'm pleased to turn Terry's Place over to Elspeth Antonelli. Every Wednesday, she creates a picture post at her blog, and she's sharing her creativity with us today.

Thanks so much, Terry, for letting me be your guest today.

If you're a writer then your writing could be viewed as this...


There are days when you write like this...





But then there are days when you slow to this...



Or even this...



But there are the days when it feels like this...



Or even this...



Although you might feel like this...



Or even this...



I wish all of you many days of this...




feeling like this.



After many years working in theatre as an actress, director and costume designer, Elspeth Antonelli turned her hand to writing. She has written 12 murder mystery games and 2 plays and is now finishing her first novel. You can find her mystery games here. Her blog, "It's A Mystery" is here. And if you want to find her on Twitter, she's @elspethwrites.

Terry, thanks for hosting Elspeth.

Elspeth, your picture posts always tell such wonderful stories. I've always heard a picture is worth a thousand words and you definitely make them talk.

Elspeth, you ROCK!
Thanks for hosting her, Terry.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Thanks again, Terry, for inviting me to post here today. It was a pleasure to create another of my 'picture posts'.

Terry Odell said...

Thanks, all. It's my total pleasure to have Elspeth here today. I love her posts at her blog and am thrilled she agreed to be my guest.

Terry Odell said...

I don't know if it's Blogger, but some posts aren't showing up. I'll see if I can figure out why, but don't let that stop you. They'll probably all spurt forth at once.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Thanks, Carol! I had already left my thanks to Terry, but blogger ate it. So here it is again - thanks Terry, for hosting me today. It was fun to create a picture post for you.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Okay, so now Blogger has decided to post both of them and I've said thank you twice.

Thanks to you too, Mason, for your very kind words.

Elspeth - I love this depiction! There are, indeed, some days when writing just floods out of one, and others when it seeps or slows to a halt. Weird, isn't it, how there just never seems to be a warning for what kind of writing is coming 'round the bend...

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Margot; I KNOW! And where, pray tell, is my life jacket?

Debra St. John said...

Great visuals...these days I'll feeling a bit like the dessert picture, but hopefully the falls will be flowing soon!

Hart Johnson said...

Love it, Elspeth! They fit so well, don't they? I can live with the rough waters, but those dry spells are killers!

Alan Orloff said...

I love your pict-o-blog today! And so true!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Debra; Listen closely. You'll hear the roar of the falls.

Hart; The dry spells are the worst - every time I'm sure it's never-ending.

Alan; Thanks! And I'm stealing 'pic-o-blog'.

That's a most excellent photo essay, Elspeth.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Patricia; Thanks most sincerely!

Michele Emrath said...

Or days when you write like this:









Yep. That's me. A big nothing on my page right now!

You're always on point, Elspeth. Thanks for the great guest blogger, Terry!

Good job, Elspeth! What a beautiful, interesting, and fun way to show the stages in a writer’s life. I think I’ve experienced all of them at one time or another.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Thanks for you kind comments, Michele and Jane; and a special thank you to Terry. It's been fun!

I love your stories told in pictures! Thanks so much for hosting Elspeth, Terry!

Love these photo essays Elspeth! Love the guy peeking out of the barrel - but I love the feeling of the flying fish -- wish it came more often :)
