This is where everything is really starting to come together. Today I finally figured something out that I had been a bit stuck on. Turns out NaNoWriMo is a great motivator for sticking to something even when I feel stuck and would otherwise give up saying that the story or the characters need more time.
It kind of makes me question all of my writing beliefs. What if everything worked this way, that I only needed to push through and I’d find the answers? Well, maybe it does, and maybe it doesn’t. No two stories are alike.
Maybe it wasn’t ever that the characters needed more time. Maybe I did. I learn a lot about myself through writing. Some concepts are lessons I wouldn’t have been ready for earlier. It’s all a process. It’s interesting to uncover all the secrets that are hidden in the other worlds… The worlds we create from somewhere deep inside us. Our deepest secrets, longings, and fears, all wrapped in a world that is dying to get out.
