So the hardest part about writing to me lately is finding inspiration. But not only inspiration, it’s finding the will to put words onto my laptop once again. I’ve been in such a writing rut that I didn’t know if I was going to publish anything else after The Making of a Queen Part One (which I know would have been cruel not to finish the story for that book, but I didn’t know what else to do).
Writing isn’t easy. It never has been for me and for those who have it flow and come naturally all the time for, I’m completely jealous of you, but I have difficult characters who never let me follow my plan. They change it. And that alone is completely frustrating.
Most authors will tell you that if you wait until you have inspiration to write, you’ll hardly ever write. And I’ve discovered that to be true. For awhile now, I’ve been waiting for inspiration to write and that hasn’t been working out very well. None of my characters have been speaking to me. Their choices seem wrong though and they’re digging me into a hole, deeper and deeper. It’s something that is hard to counteract.
But I want to let you guys know that I am getting myself there, slowly. I’m putting words back into the stories that I nearly gave up on and I’m counting myself thankful that I didn’t give up like I’ve wanted to for so long now.
