One night at home I sat quietly by myself as I stared blankly at my computer screen. A page and a half covered in words that may or may not be something worth something. I placed my hands gently onto the keys and stopped thinking so much about what I was writing and how much and just let my fingers type. The idea that maybe I was over thinking what I wanted to say came to mind a lot.
Seven pages later I finished chapter three. Yeah. Seven pages doesn’t sound too good, especially for readers, but I can always go back and add more. Do more later. All I want to achieve right now is finishing the story.
Now I am slowly working on chapter four. The plan I had for the story isn’t going correctly and now I have to rethink what I want to put in chapter four. I’ll figure it out eventually. I usually do. Then I’ll have to find the words that are correct. :)
I should have a short story posted soon. For anyone who wants to see how I write. Maybe that will make someone out there excited about the finishing of my book and possibility of publishing it besides me – of course.
That is what I made my New Years Resolution. I would like to finish “Frost” & finally finish “The Letters” (even if it comes out to be a long short story. But I want to finish it. It’ll probably never be published, since it’s not an actual ‘novel’, but I want to be done with it. Once and for all.)
