I’ve read that we’re supposed to give our characters a hard time and/or come up with the worst possible scenarios for them AND put them through it. I love my characters and there’s something oddly satisfying when they’re put through the literary wringer. I’m not a sadist. It’s clear that as a writer I’m definitely a masochist, but amping up the tension and conflict is as exciting for me to write as I hope it will be for others to read. 🙂
Speaking of, does it come off as biased if I say I’m enjoying what I’ve written thus far? It’s not for bragging purposes, but rather to keep my interest piqued and hopefully the story on the right track. In the interim, there are plenty of writing reference books that can prove useful in this endeavour.
My #Fire_Divas teammates are supporting each other no matter what. Although Entangled has prizes at stake, I think the greatest reward (without delving into cheesy sentimental territory) is the act of writing coupled with the constant feedback and accountability during the writing process. It’s a simple recipe for success in our writing community.
Today, I returned to make use of my mirrored closet doors. Also, now that I’m reunited with my uke, Bilbo and I will make sweet music.
In other learned circles, this evening the Sisterhood and I will head to the cinema to watch a play. Yep, you read that right. I get to see the wonderful David Tennant, pre-50th anniv Doctor Who special, in the title role of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Richard II. It will be the first time the RSC will stream a live theatre broadcast. Exciting!
I’ll consider it a mid-week treat for all the writerly efforts. 🙂
