Writing has been slow lately. The words just haven’t wanted to come out unless they were just right. It’s been very annoying. I just stare at the screen waiting for better words to come. I know where I want the scene to go and what happens I’m just at a loss for words. But, so far, I think it’s going pretty well.
I’m now up to 68,050 words and I can feel the ending in my bones. I’m not totally clear on what that ending is, but it will come to me. I have a few vague idea floating around but nothing is solid yet. It’s tough, sometimes I feel like I could end this thing in just a few more chapters but then I worry that won’t be enough to wrap things up.
Also, I’m being distracted by ideas and random little scenes for my other project. It keeps quietly jumping up and down in the back of my brain like a kid who really needs to go to the bathroom but is too afraid to interrupt the teacher to ask. I am getting to the point where I really want to just finish Moon Dragons and put it down for it’s waiting period so can tinker with yet another version of White Crow.
I pray that the Writing Gods will bestow on me more focus on a single project and more time to write. Amen! 🙂
And now, here is a bit of something I wrote this week.
And now for some writing things I’d like to share. 🙂
- This is a great article I discovered about challenging the roles of women in stories. It’s a truth versus what we are being told is the truth sort of thing. Give it a read.
- Felicia Day has created a new channel on YouTube called Geek & Sundry Vlogs. And on there is a vlogger who talks about writing. She gives weekly writing challenges and the like. So if you’re looking for more ways to be creative, check it out here. And check out the other vloggers as well, it’s all very geeky.
- I’m a girl and most of my main characters are girls, but I do have boy characters and this article has helped me figure out better ways to write men and make them more realistic.
That’s it for now, friends! So tell me, how’s your writing week been going?
