It's odd that I have found so late in my life - that I love writing. I love my characters. I would guess that my way of writing is not the way it is supposed to be done. I actually have no idea what I am doing, I have no story idea really. There are no outlines, no character traits or bios. I simply write and let the story unfold as I write. My first story was a nightmare, it was dragged and poked and punctuated to death. I almost hated it and was going to give up. Then I made a weird one, probably not any good either, but I loved my characters. I am now writing book two of an unconventional love story and I am possessed. For all I know, it is trash, but I love my characters and enjoy the ride. The fun thing about it, is that my memory is full of holes and as I re-read what I've written to get started the next day, I am always surprised. I will say to myself "good wording" or "did I write that?" Well anyway, I am having fun and that's what counts.
I hope Y'all are having fun your way!
