Welcome to my world. Writing and reading is my everything. To me, it’s like breathing. Or almost… I mean, I can live without writing for a day, but barely. So perhaps more like drinking or eating. Know what I mean?
I seldom know what to write, when I put my fingers on the keyboard. I look at the empty page on my screen and something happens… The pictures start showing up in my head, and the words flood out through my fingers. It is as exiting writing it as it (hopefully is) for my readers to read it. Because I don’t know what’s going to happen before it happens.
I have tried to control my protagonist, but it won’t work. Like in one of my mystery novels I sooo wanted my leading lady to fall in love with a handsome american gentleman, but she wouldn’t. She ended up having an affair with him, but that was it. Then a few chapters later, when she walks away from her mothers house, crying, she runs into a man on a field! She falls in love immediately, and I had no idea where he came from!
Well, that’s what happens when you surrender to the writing, I guess.
