The Chapter Moved Forward

 

(This picture sums up exactly what my thoughts have concluded tonight)

It’s been a challenge of a couple of days with thinking about the right direction for this chapter.  I can see it all in my head but expressing it from head to hands is like walking with a toddler. You know you can walk fast, the toddler thinks he can walk fast but when together, you, the parent, has to slow down and let the toddler learn how to catch up.  That’s how the writing feels currently.  Maybe it’s just the screenwriter in me just wanting to get the story down, maybe I’m just impatient, don’t get me wrong I am enjoying writing but it does get a bit frustrating from time to time.

264 is tonight’s word count but I finally came back to the present day in my story which I have been very keen on doing for a few days now.  A royal figure dipped into an old memory of his brother and that’s where I had been for a few days, tonight though he popped back into the present day – phew, thought he’d never get there!

Hope you enjoyed the read tonight.

I am writer, writer am I. Mum of 2 cats and 2 children. Wife of James of Tameside. Delving deeper, blogging is new to me but writing isn't. I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories, they came very easily to me. I studied Screenwriting for Film and TV at university and gained a 2:1 BA honours for it but then never did anything else with it. I struggle a lot with motivating myself and with now having 2 cats plus kids that motivation went right out of the window....up until recently. A friend had suggested starting a blog and so I set up on WordPress and my motivation came flying back into my life like it had always been there! There are days where I'm either too tired to write but I am always thinking of my main project - writing a children's novel. So that's progress right?
