I was going to blog a little about how writing is perhaps is supposed to be this hard (A thinly veiled rant), but instead my uncle sent me this picture from Little Sis’ wedding showing the stack of books wedding cake that Natalie made for her. Little Sis is the cutie in the Jane Austen-style wedding dress. Unfortunately, her husband is blocking the view. Oh well, she’s a little camera shy and it’s all about the cake anyway.
I’m still going to say — this writing thing is tough right now. Maybe I’m missing Little Sis. I’m not going to bug her in her early days of wedded bliss though this book needs her desperately!
But maybe it should be this tough. Maybe you should never be quite confident in the book you’re writing. I don’t know if I can write these characters. I don’t know if I’m making them more complicated than they have to be! But perhaps that’s the exact level of paranoia you need to keep writing?
I have a Write-In today and I hope to bang out another scene. Sometimes the words flow and it’s euphoric. Right now, it’s just work. 🙂
In case you’re wondering, some books in the stack:
- Wonder Boys – the book that Little Sis’ hubby was reading when she first came up to speak to him
- Oliver Twist – An orange-striped book in homage to Oliver (aka Ollie cat), their tabby beast
I have to find out what the other titles were. The groom’s cake was a bunch of cupcakes with pirate flags. Very cute.
