Its been awhile and I hope everyone is doing well. Life is just crazy and I don’t get to check in with you all as often as I’d like.
Is anyone participating in NANOWRIMO?
How’s it going for you so far?
As for me, it’s my first one. I’ve had a few ideas on what to do and where my stories and writings should go and also what should happen to whom.
And I’ve never been so drained in my life, not because I find the process of writing a novel and generating a title for it all in a month a daunting one (although it is certainly hard work) but because I find myself being taken in all types of directions by my characters.
They are taking me places from which they (and I) can never come back.
On one hand, I’m glad. As a someone I know had once put it, I am continuing to “write in a way that scares me.” I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product and sharing it with you all.
The rub with that?
I empathize with them. I feel with them. I fear with and for them.
Translation: It’s freaking me out…
