Writing is Work
I’m still doing it! Writing between 1000 and 2000 words each day. So far, almost 20,000 words and the goal is 50,000 by November 30.
I plan to make it but definitely, I’ll have more words written than ever before on my novel: Aldhaven, a love story.
What excites me is this: I dropped the idea of writing along a plot line in sequential order. Didn’t work for me. Now, I write in segments. I let my characters meet up in different situations and have them communicate to see what happens. They decide the outcome of the plot. It’s almost like watching a movie, where I don’t know the end. This works for me.
I do like drama and love to read plays, and I like to write dialogue and let my characters perform. It’s thrilling. I put in some background too and those segments are quite different but as important. History, fate, choice, all vital to the story. I am a visual person and see my story while writing.
However, writing is Work! You gotta like it
