One thing you never think about when your writing the book is finishing. It seems as though it will be nice and final, like the end of the chapter.
I’m so stuck right now. Remember in that last post (earlier today) when I said that I was two chapter’s away from the end? It may have been more like two pages.
What am I going to do? What am I supposed to do? No one ever said THIS would happen!
So, taking advice from the great Meg Cabot (there) I’m going to sleep on it, and in the mean time, I’m going to sleep on it, and in the mean time, start the next story.
The next story. Do you remember how hard it is to start a new story? Uggg…I’m dreading it already, not even past the first day. I’ve been dreaming about this story forever it seems like, but dreaming is easy. Now, I have to put it into words and down on the paper.
Isn’t it funny how we don’t think in words, despite how much we talk and write. It’s so funny the way our thoughts our stringed together in pictures and everything else, and yet it still all makes sense.
I have a lot on this story, a lot of little snippets on what it’s about, and I love the characters already.
There is a quote that said writers are people for whom writing is harder than the average person, and as I sit in front of the computer now, I realize that this is true. Some authors just have horrible middles, or horrible beginnings, or horrible ends, but I have horrible everythings. Sure, there are some of those AMAZING moments, Meg talks about in her post, some days when I get 20-30 pages, but most of them are hard-fought.
Sometimes, I like to think that all writers wonder why they write, because I do alot, and I think that the reason is because it’s hard for us, and so like any human being, we want to succeed in that one thing that’s been told to us that we can’t.
In other news, guess what ISN’T playing at my local theater, or for a 75-mile radius.
THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER!
I am aghast. I was so excited. It looked beautiful and funny and deep and romantic all at the same time. What happened?
Gosh. Guess I have to wait till it comes out on red box, hopefully they won’t betray me.
