Hello? Anybody home?

I HATE this part of the writing life....

....that scary time between projects.

My idea box is empty.

I will never have another idea as long as I live.

This happens to me EVERY time I finish a book.

EVERY time.

I stare into my box of ideas....

...and it is empty.

E.M.P.T.Y.

I am all washed up.

I am a has-been.

Goodbye.

Send me that box -- I'll put something in it.

Meanwhile, there's always that back-burner pot to stir...

Someone just twittered about a dream she had about a troupe of traveling vampire thespians. Does that trigger any ideas? ;)

I give you five minutes with that empty box of ideas. Ten, tops.

I'm sure ideas will come when you least expect them. Soon that box will be full. Last night when I went to bed I got ideas for a picture book. I wrote it all down in my yellow notebook, because I was sure if I didn't the idea would be lost when I woke this morning.

Ideas will come up your head later.Everyone gets ideas in their heads.Is the same as writing a book you have to think of ideas to put in your book.I know that later ideas will pop into your head.

Oh no, no! You can't stop now! You're the one that got my 9 year old back interested in reading again. How about "How to Steal a Cat"? ha!

I have all the faith in the world in your ability to have many more ideas. You're just taking a small "rest" right now. :)
