So, that's where my non-writer friends give me the crazy eye. Most say, "your writing them, what is so hard?"
I answer, "their story is just hard. I have to really think about it as I write."
Which in return, they just don't get. They wonder how their story is hard when I am the one who is creating it. And really, I don't have a good answer. It is just how it is, right?
For the first time had I to write an outline and that took me two days to just plan it. That did actually help. I think its the emotions with these two. It isn't one character chasing the other, its two characters who already liked one another. One with commitment issues and the other trying to play it cool. So, maybe that's it. I figure by the time I finish it, this will either be one of my best works or one of my worst. I am leaning for best. While I was actively working on this one, I felt the tingles in my body whenever these two were in a room together. I hope my readers can feel it too.
So, I have to ask. If you are a writer reading this, have you ever had character that gave you a hard time and how did you get through it?
And to non writers reading this, what are your thoughts?
See ya next Monday!
