Oh man, this post is going to aggravate my spell-checker.
Wroodling is something you've likely done, you just don't know you've done it.
I've never been an artist, but I imagine that even great artists tend to doodle at times. It's not something they envision being a great work of art, but the piece of paper is there, and they feel like drawing, so they doodle.
Wroodling is doodling for writers. Sometimes I wroodle little scenes that are in my head. They're not part of my current project, they may never be part of anything, but they're in my head and I'd like to get them down. So I write them.
Or sometimes I have a whole story idea I want to wroodle. Actually, on Sundays - the day that I've set aside for relaxing - I'm wroodling a book that I'm pretty sure there's no market for. Even if there was, it's not my genre. But it's fun to write and doesn't feel like work. It's wroodling.
I find wroodling replenishes me, and sometimes it even spurs great ideas.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. See you back here on Tuesday!
