Writing is so much fun! Have I ever mentioned that? Yes? I have? Oh, well, I thought it needed reiteration.
I've been snooping around NaNo and other blogs and I'm amazed at how many people cringe before a writing challenge.
Sure, I've had rough patches while writing Book 1 - times when I couldn't figure out how to accomplish a scene, or how to explain something. Times when my creativity flattened and I couldn't write period. Times when I doubted myself and the quality of my work. But those were not - let me repeat, NOT - the most prevalent times.
For 90% of my rough draft experience with AUC, I trilled at telling Paige's story. I loved the character interactions and how characters and events managed to surprise even me. I love the feeling that I was outdoing my expectations by writing better than I thought I could.
I write because I love writing. If you don't love it, then why force yourself to go through what many have described as an agonizing process? It just doesn't add up to me...
Anyway, my update for the day is that I've finished chapter 1 of Book B (5K words). Time to sleep.
