I haven’t been writing much here as I continue to work on my book. It is a mystery/supernatural story and it is becoming consuming but might take a break shortly and write some short stories and poetry. I have discovered that writing a book, not that it should have been a surprise, is a lot more work than I thought. I thought I could just write and the story would come to me and write on the fly like my poetry, but that has not been the case and research and outlines are definitely a necessity.
I have started following a few more blogs on writing as well as joining some sites and groups that can help me learn the process. I am learning to really enjoy the story telling portion and developing characters.
I have not forgotten my first art of poetry but am really starting to enjoy the challenge of writing a book and creating these characters that people, hopefully, will enjoy learning about.
