I’m getting into the writing of REIGN CHECK. As soon as I can shut off all the outside noise or distractions, it’s amazing how much work I can get done. I feel like I’m stressing out my little demon princess, but it seems no matter how much stress and angst and scary situations I put my characters into, it all seems to come out humorous because of my voice. It doesn’t feel humorous when I’m writing it, though. Well, not most of the time. But I think with the world the way it is right now, a little humor and lightness goes a long way. I’m not personally interested in mega depressing entertainment at the moment, that’s for sure. Maybe that’s why shows like Dancing with the Stars do so well. They make the people watching it happy.
This book is a lot of fun, though. Hopefully it will read that way when all is said and done.
I want to see Watchmen this week. I hear that’s rather bleak and depressing, but it’s balanced off with the glowing blue naked dude.
Of course, now that I’ve committed to working full-time on my YA, I have a dozen other ideas knocking on my imagination’s door wanting to be let in. But there’s one rule in WRITE CLUB.
WRITE BOOK. THEN WRITE NEXT BOOK. If you let the shiny new idea distract you, you’ll end up with a dozen half written novels. That’s just the way it is. And, you know what? No idea stays shiny for the amount of time it takes to write a book and there will ALWAYS be distractions. Just plug away and get to the end!! Do it!!!
The second rule about Write Club is YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT WRITE CLUB.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I also made a Speed reference last week. I am obviously living in the nineties.
Okay… I’m going back to the page. I have to write three more pages to meet my daily goal. No problemo………….
