I don’t know how other people do it but when I write, when I create something I do it as a continuous flow, like a little stream. It either comes to me as a trickle, like now with War In Flesh, or sometimes, rarely, as a river a raging torrent of ideas and scenes that come so fast I can barely keep up. For In The Flesh it came like a burbling brook, steady, constant and in good quantity.
The hardest part is to get the flow of creativity going. Fits and starts are the worst and indicate a tough day of writing. This has been the norm with War In Flesh. I find it most frustrating. Writing some stories is a joy. I hope War In Flesh becomes like that because I believe the mood of the author communicates through the work. Fortunately I’m writing a dark part of War In Flesh so it should work out. Perhaps it will work out even better than I think. At least I can hope it will.My article on Gatchaman will be posted on The Geek Girl Project today. It was a labor of love as I have fond memories of Battle of the Planets from when I was young. I actually had to do some research for this article and I’m pleased with the result. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Second Chances saw some progress yesterday too. I really need to come up with a real title for that book because I despise the working title. I’ve set the opening scenes and now I need to get names for the characters because I’ve reached the point where the working names will no longer suffice. Names are hard, they really are.
I have a busy day of writing planned so I’m going to get to work. K.
