Finding A Passion

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!

  8. My dear, write to enjoy yourself, if you do that, you can see if it's "fit to print" later, if you want. If you do the outline, and the bios, and all that, you might get it done, you might not. But, if you are actually writing the story, you get the story done!
