I Love Having Written
My writers' group, Maumee Valley Romance Authors Inc., has decided to self-publish an anthology of Christmas stories for 2024. Yep, an entire year away. It has been nine years since I have published anything (Lord how time flies) so I'm determined to meet this deadline and finally publish my sophomore story. But yall, the first draft of our stories is due January first. And as I have been working on this story for the last three months, I've come to realize that like the old saying goes, I don't like writing, I like having written! Don't get me wrong, I adore creating characters and watching them fall in love. But making them do what they need to do to get there is painful. There are so many layers to creating a story and keeping all of the balls in the air is frankly exhausting. But I'm a writer (really a story teller at heart) so I will persevere. And I want to share my stories. So wish me luck as I wrestle with this story and stay tuned so you can see what I have written.
