I’m like a ball. Once I get rolling, it’s downhill. What’s that physics law, “An object in motion stays in motion,” or something like that.
Last night, I did the last lingering assignment for my online class. (One more test and I’m free! Woot!) That’s what started the motion. Then today I did some much needed reviewing. I’m in a group and I’m so far behind. Although, I’m pretty sure everyone else is too. And I’ve been writing. I’m doing heavy edits on Sisters of Cloth (last year’s Nano) and I just started something completely new.
I love writing new stories. There’s something amazing about that first draft, especially since I refuse to edit until they’re done. So everyday is nothing but progress. And since I don’t outline until after, it’s so much fun to see where the story runs off to. The flow always carries me to far better places than I could create.
I love learning about the characters and making up the world. This story is by far the strongest world I’ve ever created. Most of the time, my poor characters are wandering around white rooms, but this one feels rich. I’ll probably take out some of it, but right now, I’m very excited.
