So y'all have heard me sort of whine for a couple weeks (months) that I haven't written a darn thing. Well, something totally took over last night and I was a writing machine!
I was up until 4AM typing, brainstorming, and typing some more--2,131 words! And it's even more random that I chose to work on the story that I had finished, turned my nose up at, and shelved. Serisously, the "last updated" date on the file was March of this year. I had decided that it was just my first full length stretch of the writing legs, and I was going to be okay with that. But yesterday, thanks to some back and forth brainstorming emails with the fabulous
Between the Letters is making a comeback...
The characters are a bit younger now, and there's a SLIGHT paranormal twist, but nothing vampirey or immortal about it. Another of my WIPs, Anemone, is completely YA, so I think since that's what I've been writing and reading lately, this story just felt better pulled back a few years. I have two computer monitors (for photo editing mostly), so I pulled up the original file on one monitor, and a BLANK Word document on the other, and literally started from the beginning. It's different... it's got more personality... I think I'm actually going to like the story this time around.(Well, I liked the bones of the story... but I wasn't HAPPY with it... you know what I mean.)
I knew I missed writing regularly, but I just felt so ON FIRE last night that it actually took me by surprise to realize how MUCH I missed it. Here's hoping I can keep on keepin on.
Thank you to my critique girls, Kristi Chestnutt and Kim Franklin, for rocking so much with the encouragement and direction help. I couldn't do it without y'all. :)
So enough about ME! Tell me about your writing progress!!
