I just finished the first week, and turned in the outline for my novel beginning the capstone process…. I have talked about a Spark! that is felt when you create and let me tell you… My Spark! is spine tingling right now.
I am doing one thing I never fully thought I’d do. Write for anyone other than me.
Poetry .. sure. That only takes an hour – 2 if I need to polish it and create a graphic background. Poetry has always been easy… but a novel?
Yet here I am. Approximately 36,000 words written (half) and the energy is stronger than ever before – even with the Negative Nora moments that I question success.
I am focusing on my target audience… middle school on up… and I know I can make a difference if I tell the story right.
Sooo… there’s that word again… so I guess I best get back to it huh?
Hope your inspiration is working with you all too!
Good morning, good night wherever you are! Be back soon…
I have taken my opportunity to keep this alive and kicking, and put it all into self restoration. Good plan maybe, but I keep saying that writing has healing qualities, which I still believe, and do continue to feel… I just need to be here more to prove it.
As I was saying… Spark! It is alive, well, and beginning to expand, though I am not sure what to make of it just yet. Last week I had a moment that felt like a genesis point for the story. I will be proving that point in the next 10 weeks as I continue my academic journey.
This time… it is part 1 of the final culmination – writing to book for completion… oy. Wish me luck!… and keep in touch if you want to follow along.
I look forward to hearing from you… oh… and if you are inclined – if you have any of those ‘little moments’… you know the ones… those that others step up when they dont have to, and make a difference in your day…
If you have any and are willing to share, I would love to hear about them. Those are the times that I see angels in our midst. That is also when I see the most creativity at work.
See you soon.
Good morning, good night wherever you are!
