An Uphill Battle
As”Walk Season”* ends for me on Saturday, I find myself with something I haven’t experienced in a few months- free time!
Despite the waiting list at my office, the planets must have aligned, because I actually have six hours without patients today. (Spring Break has a lot to do with this).
I found myself itching to write, and that’s what I’ll be doing today. First from the library (where this post is being composed), then a local frozen yogurt shop that is hosting a charity event for our Walk today. Then I’ll go to work for a few hours, then back to the yogurt shop.
My writing partner in crime is still out of town (miss you!), but I’m not without things to work on. I want to do a blog post for my OTHER blog ** about bingeing, then I want to work on my novel.
Even though I haven’t cracked open the laptop to write until today, my novel is always on my mind. I work out scenes and dialogues in my head as I drive, do mundane tasks, and try to sleep.
I have a question for my fellow fiction writers *** – Do you always know the details before you write the story? I have a beginning and an end, meaning, I know what’s going to happen to my main character. I’m still trying to work out the middle, the details, and what happens with other characters. Feel free to leave me feedback, tips, advice, plot summaries, money, etc. in the comments 🙂
* Fayetteville’s Walk to Defeat ALS is THIS Saturday, 2 April 2016. I’m super passionate about this cause and I am the Walk Committee chair. This means I’ve been crazy busy the past 6 weeks.
** I forget I have another blog. That’s a bad thing. I started it out for my practice, as a marketing tool. I didn’t do a great job, but my practice is booming so, I guess it all worked out. I would put the link here if I even knew the link. See how bad this is?
*** See what I did there? “Fellow Writers” — I considered myself a writer 🙂
