Ha! I’m finally writing! Well okay, I was writing. I’m done for tonight. It’s been a long day and it’s late now but I was antsy to finally write something so I did. 292 words. I think I was able to start writing when (a) I realized I was getting bored with my writing, (b) I’ve started having some pretty amazing dreams (I was a bad-ass Grim Reaper in one. I was so bad-ass that even the demons were scared of me and came when I called…), (c) I realized that I haven’t been able to connect those cool dreams with my boring writing and (d) I realized I never would if I didn’t start writing again. So. I wrote.
Turns out I still like my characters and my story, and maybe I’m finally ready to release the expectations of the genre I’m writing in and just write the story I want to read.
We’ll see. In the meantime, I enjoyed writing the scene I wrote tonight – started out telling, transitioned to showing without starting over. Pretty cool.
So good night, all, and happy writing!
