My problem isn’t that my characters are talking to me. The problem is that there are too many different characters talking to me. Right now, I basically have four works in progress. Writers area always talking about their WIP. I can’t really use that term because I have too many.
Now that I’m not working, I’m trying to write more. So yesterday I worked on two different stories. One is a YA contemporary piece and the other is a MG historical fiction piece. I like both stories a lot, and I fully intend to finish them both at some point in time. I just can’t seem to pick which one to write first. So I’m writing them both, at the same time. Hence, the competing voices in my head. I swear, if I wasn’t crazy before I’m going to be soon.
Joke of the Day
There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.When asked to define great, he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!" He now works for Microsoft writing error messages.
