I've really struggled with writing lately. I retired from my last full time job in 2008 and I thought I'd arrived... that I'd just write gloriously into trips to Paris and happy fan letters.
But really, I'm about to finish my current novel, which I think is the best work I've ever done.
I just got up here today. It's 9:30. I'm going to write until this novel is done. Tomorrow I'm going to rip up the tiles in the downstairs kitchen, but even while I'm doing that, I'll be thinking about story.
I kinda have two states... working on story, or being miserable.
I watched a show recently called "Skip Beat". It's a show about actors and I realized that the way I write is a lot like acting. So my books are a little like movies. I like graphic novels too, but I also love prose, so as works they merge into this product of my imagination.
This post is for the blog hop :) So here's a question for you... what do you hope for your writing? What is an ideal outcome for you? Do you want to see your stories made into movies? Be on the NY Times Best Seller list? What's your favorite publisher? What do you dream?
