November 30th is here and in my attempt to post at least once a month, here it is.
When the creative juices stop flowing, I take time to re-read some oldies but goodies. I will spend some time “daydreaming” and re-writing favorite scenes in my head. I enjoy the brainstorming activity and it keeps my mind occupied when I’m driving long distances or running. Eventually I sit back down and move forward on my own novel but I try to never compare my characters to others.
Truth be told, I have rewritten my own scenes in my head several times, but that’s okay because there is no ending yet and it can’t change an outcome that hasn’t happened!
I can’t believe it’s the end of October already. Haven’t had a chance to blog lately but wanted to take a minute to update you on my progress.
This book writing journey remains a positive experience for me and I haven’t lost my sense of humor (yet). Admittedly, I was frustrated for a while but that’s when I took some time off to re-evaluate where I was going with things. During my “down-time” I tried to read as much as I could and stay off the internet. I had spent too much time trying to figure out how to market a book I hadn’t even written yet.
So as the colors change, I have renewed my love affair with my two favorite characters (and some witty extras who keep them on the right path). I hope we’re not still having this conversation by the time the snow falls. I hope to be through the editing phase by then, but of course I said that last summer!!!
