I’ve had some unexpected turns lately, which, in hindsight have proven to be beneficial, though it may take months to figure out just how beneficial. Painful as those turns have been, I know everything will work out as it should, as it always does.
That said, I’ve suddenly been put in a position to do NANOWRIMO again for myself. So far, I have about eight characters and a title, which is more than I usually have at this point, so I am happy about that.
I had a long weekend, and today while it was raining, I went to Borders to look around and breathe in ink and paper and listen to some good music. I went all over the store (it was raining really hard out there) and while I was in the periodicals section, one of my characters jumped out at me from the cover of a British music magazine. I love it when that happens.
My characters are taking more shape and coming to life, which makes this whole process flow. I still have no idea what I’m going to write, but I now have a better idea of who is going to tell the story.
