keeping up my posts, am I? Not for lack of trying. Was busy working on the cover for Two Love Again and then after brainstorming with a writing friend, one of the stories I started quite some time ago, came to life again.
Aunt Beatrice Lulu from All in the Family started talking - uh yelling - at me and insisted on her own story. I should have known she wouldn't be satisfied with a bit part. She wants the limelight.
So I started writing and then she quit talking to me.
It's never good when a character refuses to talk. Most people don't know writers can't force a story. It has to come from the characters.
One of the things I need to know before I start writing is how the story ends. What happens in the middle is as much a surprise to me as it is to the reader.
I never know where characters are going. So once I figured it out, well that lady just won't be quiet. Which is fine with me. I love when characters talk. I have a book I started years ago, that I still don't know how it ends, hence it sits with only the beginning written. It has the potential to be an excellent story. In fact, I have three or four like that. One day I hope they'll show me where they want to go.
I do love Aunt Beatrice Lulu though. She's such a fun character. It doesn't have a title yet, but I'm sure she'll show me that one also.
So, my apologies on not keeping my promise to write every day.
