Things are a little chaotic lately. I’ve been feeling that there are so many things that need to be done and it’s like I’m everywhere. Like there is a disruption for no reason and I have too much stress. Maybe it’s because I want to do so many things and there are so many obstacles. But there is also a good thing too.
I’m writing again in a tight schedule! YAY!
Writing is what keeps me sane these days and I want so much to finish Damaged, to continue Meg’s story and see where it will lead me. Every time I write it’s like I’m on a wild ride and the surprises keep coming one after the other. But these are the good surprises.
For yet another time, like in Divided, I know how the book will end but I have no clue how it will get to that end. Hopefully though this never stopped me from writing. Deep down I think that’s what keeps me going. The unknown which is full of so much potentials. And Meg’s story is wild and surprising even for me. Every time she is in a tight corner I think that I hit a block and … bam. She sneaks out. But not without consequences.
Some of you may know that I’m not the happy ending girl. It’s not that I don’t like a good ending, but only if it's “realistic”. Meaning that I want the story to have a steady and consistent pace even if it’s about elves or fairies. I write having I mind what she’s been through and I am not afraid to bring her face to face with her decisions.
Well, are you thinking that I am tormenting my character? Hmmm, maybe a little, but she had it coming! After all I haven’t planned a thing. She is the one that drives me through her story and I’m so loving it. I just want her to be where I want for the end of this book. For the rest, she is free to improvise.
Do you feel this way too? When I’m writing is like I jump in another dimension and, like I’ve said before, the voices come and I have to obey. I see every scene and I can almost smell the muddy ground or the fresh-baked croissants.
I really want the Wandering Souls series to be a read that you’ll enjoy. I’m doing my best in every aspect. Writing, story, pace, plot, action, killings, love and … I really want you to enjoy it when I’m able to share it.
Oh, damn … now I want to write some more so off I go.
But please, share your thoughts with me. What is writing for you? What is like when you’re reading a story?
Meg is calling, I have to hurry! Bye, bye.
