A fellow blogger here, Breathwords, has a Wonderful blog! It’s filled with beautiful poetry and other amazing things. Be sure to check it out. The reason I bring up my new-found friend, is because of a recent revelation. They say “write what scares you”. I’ve done that a little bit, but I’ve always held back, not liking what was coming up on the page.
After much thought, I’ve decided that my WIP needs a complete rewrite. This is a good thing! I’ve been languishing for months with this nagging feeling. I knew why, but I didn’t know how to fix it. Now I do!
It surprises me what ends up on the page when I start writing. Sometimes I have a specific idea in mind and other times I don’t. The cursor takes over. I’m just along for the ride.
The feeling is intoxicating and exhilarating. When things are flowing, it’s just magic. It’s a high like no other.
I’ve written a few things lately that I would call dark. There are times when I look back over the page and am shocked at how dark it becomes.
My WIP has morphed into something much darker than what it started out. But it’s good! (evil grin as I rub my hands together)
Apparently, I have a Dark Side. But it’s Fun being the Bad guy!
How do you feel about your Dark characters?
WordPress tells me that I have 200 Posts! I had no idea. Who knew I had so much to say! I consider myself a pretty quiet person. What a Blabber Mouth I am! 🙂
I enjoy my time on WordPress and have made some good connections and what I consider friendships. I enjoy checking in on my Favorite Bloggers to see how they are doing.
I’ve been doing my best (although it seems incredibly slow, I am making progress) to spend more time on my WIP novel. So I don’t get here as often as I used to. I know that I miss a lot as I scroll through the Reader.
So if you wonder why you haven’t seen the Likes or Comments from me that you used to, that’s why. Please know that I’m still here. I’m a little further in the background. But I’m still here, cheering you on!
THANK YOU to all of you that follow me. I’m a little overwhelmed and extremely flattered that you would bother to look in on me and my life.
