Work In Process : Just a Little Something
I've mentioned a few times I've been in a bit of a writer's slump lately. I have been staring at the same drafts for moons now, unsure of what to do with them, where to take the story, blah blah blah....
I thought a lot of it had to do with the fact that I had a lot of work published that I no longer loved. So, I removed it with the idea that I would tell the stories behind them. Now, that is just sitting in drafts, not because I don't love the idea of having an autobiographical anthology of sorts, but it's been more of a time issue with all of the things going on in life.
Every once in a while, a blurb of an idea will come from my keyboard. This is one of them. I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet. If I should create a new story, new character, new everything or, if this should be inserted into the already started tale that's been sitting patiently for me to add to it.
We shall see. Unlike some writers who sit and crank out tales from start to finish with a story in mind (this happens, but it is rare for me) I tend to get ideas, and write them. Little scenarios, write them. Then, they all come together as a puzzle into a tale to be told.
It's a weird way to work, I know that. And probably why it takes me so long to get anything done. But that is okay, I am not in any sort of a race here.
So, here we go. I published this little gem on my Tumblr this morning.
