Also, it turns out that writing a novel is more difficult than I thought it would be. I mean, just because I have a cast of characters written up, a sweet plot, and a suggested plot timeline doesn't mean that the words are just going to tumble out onto the page. I find it much easier to write a blog post. Writing a blog post is a lot more fun for me in number of different ways:
- I get to use ALL CAPITALS FOR EMPHASIS.
- I can be much more liberal in my use of exclamation points!!!! Not using them feels stifling!!
- It's published immediately, just as soon as I hit that magic button.
- People applaud my efforts by taking the time to comment.
- IT ENDS SOONER.
In the meantime, the local writer's club that I belong to meets again on Monday. If I don't squeeze out some more pages before then, I'll have to explain to everyone that my writing style is mostly just pressing the backspace key.
