CONFESSIONS OF A WRITER
Here’s a peak inside the mind of a writer. I’m not about to say whether or not this is normal for a writer. I’ll let you be the judge.
1. I sometimes get up in the morning eager to find out what happens in a story then realize–shoot–I have to finish writing it.
2. I laugh at things my characters say or do. As if I didn’t make it up. Though, honestly, there are times when I’m writing and it feels more like I’m a spectator than the creator.
3.I tell my friends about people in my stories as if they are real. (Of course in my mind, they are.)
4. I like having written better than writing. Starting is particularly hard. Every morning I have to fight resistance.
5. Everything is research–a trip to the coffee shop where I watch a young couple not speaking to each other, a walk through a park where I take note of places where it would be nice for a young couple to sit and make up.
6. The best revenge is making someone who has been nasty the villain in a story.
7. I sometimes look up from writing a summer scene and am disoriented by the fact it is winter outside my window. And visa versa.
So if sometimes I act a little strange you now know why.
