Have you ever read a book where in the beginning you are really enjoying it, you consume the pages, going full speed, only to be disappointed halfway through when you think, "Gee, it's like the author doesn't care anymore."
I've had this happen a few times, and every time it happens I think: What happened to the passion? What happened to the excitement and thrill?
I find that in writing a good story, one must be true to the characters and always ignite raw emotion and situations where the character's character is tested. I find I am hitting a roadblock with Devil on the Windowsill. It's like something is missing, but what? Ah, the joys of writing. It may be I have too much on my plate right now, and somehow my creativity is being sucked out. What's really weird though is that I see the characters so clearly, I know their stories, their struggles, but somehow, in the book, they just aren't meshing well.
This is okay, I am going to set it aside for a week or two and start back writing on 150 P.I. as I tell any budding author...you must write everyday. Thanks for stopping by. XO ELICIA
