Many part time writers can tell you how difficult it is to set time aside to practice their craft. And many times before have I stated I’m not a real writer. So not being a real writer, combined with working at it in my spare time, makes working on this hobby even more of a struggle.
I try to schedule time; and I try to sort out what I’d be working on in those times. But it’s also difficult to force the creative side of your brain to work at a specific time.
So, instead of forcing what I think I should be working on, I decided to make it easier on myself and flow with what pops into my head. And, it seems that my new characters are taking over my thoughts; or that my mind is first focusing on these new characters.
Now, I do have an idea of the type of story I want to write. And I have an idea of the setting; well, sort of have an idea on the setting. And, I’m hoping that as I fine tune the personality traits, history, and dialogue of these few characters, all will fall into place. Right?
Hope; such a strong word.
