I write to keep me sane. I write so that my words may outlive my life. I write to find redemption

I feel like I haven't posted here in ages. The novel, Nikolas and Simone, is still plodding along. I'm starting to think of the whole process as a relationship. I fell in love with the idea in November. It was a crazy time. Everything moved quickly. We spent morning, noon and night togther. No one else mattered.

Then came the holidays. The stress of the New Year. The frigid air that engulfs the Windy City. Things cooled off. We were on a break.

Sping ushered in a fresh wave of excitement. We found each other again. We dabbled around together, seeing if we were still a good fit.

By June we were having doubts. It's July now and I just about hate my novel. Nikolas and Simone are houseguests that stayed way too long. I want to move and not tell them my new address. LOL.

But we are in this together. I am taking them to the end of the line. I will be thrilled to have this novel done because I want to start dating again. I want a little fling before NaNoWriMo. Maybe a short story series or a novella. Something lighter, something I don't invest so much into.

But before I can run off with the poolboy I have to finish things up with the current relationship- Nikolas and Simone.

    I love that, Sara!

    I was just thinking the other day that I started out so in love with my book's hero, Tam Lin, then needed some "me time," we fell out of touch, and I--well, I "strayed." New ideas, new stories--new heroes! But I think I still love Tam Lin and Jennet, it's just "finding the magic again."

    So I'm writing through some of the necessary scenes (gosh, it's like planning a wedding, too--ugh!) and hoping to hit the honeymoon period (again). I want that moment when Tam Lin and Jennet get their HEA. I think we all deserve it!

    I think we do have to have a love affair with our stories--In hopes others will love them, too!

    Great post!

    Yes, I still remember how it was for you.
    Good luck with it all, Sara. :)
