If, as we sit at our desk, we're thinking about the book signings, the royalties, the outfit we'll wear to the premiere of the film adaptation, or anything else that hasn't happened yet...
Then we're disconnecting from the feelings of the writing process.
If we don't feel when we write
If we don't feel everything, and feel deeply
If we don't address any unconscious avoidance of feeling
Then the reader won't feel.
And that's the primary reason they are there!
So when a thought of future success, or failure comes up...
What am I avoiding here?
