I have been absent here more than I want to be. In the photo above I am sending all of you guys LOVE. I am thankful to anyone who stops here for a visit.
I don't want to see the Internet as an energy drainer but maybe it is for me right now. Just for a little while. See, here's the I thing---I am afraid.
If I log on to blog, maybe even do a little blog visiting while I am at it then I may not write the other thing. The other thing that means the world to me and that other thing being the telling of the story of a girl named Able. (I mentioned this project a few posts back.)
Everything about this project seems so fragile to me.
What if I run out of time? If I blog will I use up all of my creative energy? Is this even possible? Maybe it is like love and just keeps growing.
Also it's as if I think I have only so many words I am allowed to write per day and I need to save them for her story.
I am funny this way and will try to work past it all.
So, not only am I consumed with reading everything I can get my hands on about writing fiction, I am spending any extra ME time with laptop perched on lap, writing away, praying with all of my heart that I can translate the characters in my head into words and that this story is worth telling. Well, I shouldn't write that. I know it is worth it to me because I am enjoying it so very much. The world of fiction, of make believe, of magic. I am addicted to this character, to her story and I am anxious to share more with you. Soon, I hope.
I am working through the first draft now. I am going through to the end. That is my mission. :)Last night I checked my word count and I was at 20, 000 words! Yay! I did a little shout for joy. This is already a record for me. I am on chapter 7...I think there will be around 21 chapters or so...
I hope everyone is well and being creative.
