I think I’m getting closer. I have about 10 scenes left to write (yes, I use Scrivener.). Unfortunately, they are the most difficult. I know, you say, why did I not start with those. Well, this portion of the novel was actually an afterthought. I felt led by one of the characters in this direction. AND, this led me to a much greater amount of research.
I know I have been rather sporadic in my posting. I try to come up with something everyday but some days there’s just nothing. I feel like an empty shell.
Still, I soldier on. I know this is the book, or at least one of the books, that I am meant to write. I’ve been back and forth with ideas for other stories. I ask myself, should I stop and try one of them but I always go back to the original novel. There lies my heart.
Hang with me on my quiet days. The days when my chronic illness overwhelms me. I always bounce back.
I never give up.
