Writing the new WiP has been draining me lately. I haven’t written stuff this dark in a long time, and its taken a lot out of me.
Usually I don’t have a problem, but I’m really getting into the characters and discovering who they are, and why they’re there.
This is something I haven’t felt in a long time with my writing, sure I’ve written, but nothing like the current project. I finally feel at peace with my writing, and I’m comfortable with where it’s headed, which is an odd thing to admit.
The current WiP came to me in a dream, much like most of my writing. But the dream felt more real than anything I’d felt before. So I wrote it down, posted it one here and a story has blossomed from the one post.
I’m having more fun writing than I’ve had in a long time, and I finally feel comfortable in my own writing skin.
There’s not much I’ve done with this WiP that hasn’t felt right, there’s so much that’s felt perfect.
I don’t know where it’s taking me but I know I’ll enjoy the ride.
