So, I’ve stumbled on a new YA project idea. I’ve blurbed it out and have begun plotting. It’s set during biblical times and involves giants. I’m really excited about it. It feels like a cute, good time story, with just enough seriousness to make it intriguing. There are a few points that I need to figure out but that’s what we writers do.
I listened to a Stephen King/George R.R. Martin and I enjoyed hearing their stories of how they began writing. It’s just something they fell into. I was like that. I just started writing scripts for my cowboys and Native Americans and my Barbies at a young age. I didn’t know that this writing thing was something I could actually do. It was just a part of me.
They shared how they got published. That first story. I can’t wait for that day for myself. They also shared a bit about their writing processes. For my own, I just take my outline and my pics of my characters and setting to ground me and then words just happen. Sometimes it’s a few, other times more. I’m averaging six pages right now when I do write though there’s been some days I had to pass.
Both admitted the fans didn’t understand the writing process and how sometimes you couldn’t just produce something if you wanted quality, it took time. I’m a slow writer as I’ve mentioned before. Though sometimes, I can produce faster. It depends on how well the Muse is flowing. Did you watch the interview? What did you think?
Have a great week, take care, and God bless!
