Here's a Story…

My writing progress for the week, told in the form of a symbolic story:

I’m riding along on my bike, trailing happily, looking at the view. It’s stunning. Full of wildflowers and bright green grass. I ride faster, spurred by the cool breeze and sunshine. The bumpy road doesn’t deter me. In fact, it only exhilarates me further. The world is now a blur of color as I zoom by. Flying. Going fast.

Too fast.

Can’t stop.

Is that a-

Wait, no-



The End

And that’s still where I am. At the brick wall. Wondering why on Earth my story just stalled. It’s like my characters decided to take a vacation and didn’t leave a number. *shakes head* I wrote two entire scenes where their bodies were present, but their souls were GONE. Now I’m worried.

Maybe I can put out an ad:

WANTED– Loyal characters willing to trust their master and obey her. Promise of true love and happiness. Must be willing to suffer terrible, life altering trials first. Threat of death always imminent if master is displeased.

What? Don’t think that’ll attract any attention? 😉

Have a splendid Friday, folks!

  1. I wish I could send you some of my mojo because I have been writing like the wind this week. And for the majority of this year I haven’t been able to do that so I feel blessed. My characters won’t leave me alone and it’s a good thing.

    So I am sending you some virtual writing mojo. Have a good weekend! 🙂

  2. Don’t worry, they’ll be back. Until they are, read stuff that jazzes you, get a pitcher of margaritas (or whatever turns you on), make a nuisance of yourself, stir things up, invite those characters to come and play with you. Maybe they will, maybe they won’t, but you’ll have enjoyed yourself in the meantime. Rock on!

  3. Hehehehe…sounds like an interesting “bike ride”. I understand how frustrating those absent character moments are – I’m having that very same ding-dang issue right now. Hang in there and the characters will be back. I’ll sit on the waiting couch with you and see what comes next. They’ve probably just stepped out for lunch. ^_~
