There is a way to go about writing that’s been sticking in my brain.
I haven’t been able to work really well until recently, at least on a novel. I have short stories coming from everywhere, but novels have eluded my since May.
Recently, the last week actually, I found my way through them and into something more worthy.
This breakthrough or whatever you want to call it came out of writing for an anthology with a quick turn around. I realized I was entirely capable of writing a story in a couple of days, editing it the best of my ability and submitting it.
It was less difficult than I believed it would be and found myself actually enjoying the editing process, macabre as hell I know, but it did happen.
When I came back down from the editing and after I submitted it, I realized what I’d done and thought about it for a few days.
Today is the first day I’ve thought of putting something down about the experience.
I’d been avoiding this blog, though still paying for it, maybe because I was paying for I was avoiding it.
Whatever the case, I’ll be sharing my writing journey more often.
I write horror and that comes in many varieties.
I’ll see you on Wednesday.
