I wish I was better at drawing so I could ACCURATELY draw what I see in my head if my characters.
Instead I have to rely on words. Which honestly, is only going to help me when i am working on the story, but it is still a bit frustrating.
I have some really cool characters in this novel, but they are so confusing to explain when people ask me about them.
Today I was writing out some details of the different people groups, and I literally thought to myself…”but what kind of clothes would a salamander wear?” 🤔🤔🤔
Really though I’m a bit stumped here, so any help would be appreciated.
My new deadline for finishing this draft is September. It was going to be later, but some things are kind of up in the air with my job that actually pays me, so I want to have a workable draft by then. I’m at the point in my life where I actually like the work I am doing, and I’m not exhausted and stressed at the end of each work day. And i don’t want to go back to that now that I’ve experienced how it feels to do something I love. It’s scary, but out of all the craziness and changes and running and moving that has happened in my life, the one constant is that I always have stories in my head. And more and more I’m accepting it as the part of myself that I need to nurture and cultivate so that I can share those stories with others. So. Workable full draft by September. Wish me luck, three people that maybe actually read this, and world of the barely visible, lost blog posts.
Maybe someday a reader will find it 😂
Here’s a picture of my cat because why not.
