As I had previously mentioned, it is that time of year where my day job gets insanely busy. I will be putting in long hours at work, trying to balance family life, and still attempting to put forth some fresh words on a page.
I have new characters flying through my head, new kingdoms within my world, and new villains.
I am trying to keep the creativity lit while still meeting my other demands, and some of these characters won’t shut up.
Not a bad fate, except I have two other first drafts already in the works that I need to finish before I get to them.
I am not complaining about the plethora of ideas coming my way. What I need is more time…
For now, these new characters have been giving me snippets of their life and backstory on my commute into work, in the shower, while I make dinner…you get the idea. Whether any of these character will ever get their own book, I don’t know. Even if they do, how much of their story will stay the same, I don’t know.
But I thought it would be fun to share them with you. Give you a little glimpse of the madness that is being a writer as your characters are talking in your head.
I have precious little time lately, and rather than fight these shots of creativity, I am going to embrace it. See where it leads.
With that in mind, my blog posts for a bit will be shorts of all that they are showing me and telling me as I let them take over.
As always, let me know what you think.
If any of them sound particularly interesting, I will listen to them a bit more.
