I’ve made progress on the YA novel I’ve been penning. God, if only fiction was like non-fiction where you can get an agent and a damn contract with like 1/3 of the book written. It would definitely be the motivator! So far, not much as been the motivator. I’ve actually managed to completely flake off on it. Not intentionally. I’ve just been busy with school. But, I’m trying to get a whole bunch written so when I go back to my workshop class I can be finished with all my pages before I even start.
So, I’ve written:
I’ve also got 2 pages of Chapter 3 finished. I can’t write if the characters don’t want to make themselves appear. Sometimes it’s like hide-n-seek in my head. Once I figured out I was finished with chapter two all of a sudden chapter three just started rolling through in my head. It works like a movie for me and I do my best to dictate what the characters have shown me. I guess, for me, I’m not so much of a writer as I am a transcriber.
