I’m flying by the seat of my pants on this one. I have no idea what it is, or where she’s taking me, but I am bucked in and ready for the long ride. So far the journey with Alice has been fantastic. I love every word I’ve been putting down. I mentioned before that I’ve found the voice, and I certainly hope that’s true and that I can live up to it.
Every now and again, life catches up with you and forces you away from The Work. It’s a pain in the ass. Especially when I’ve been enjoying writing this novel as much as I have, so far. It’s been a rough week to ten days and the time to properly devote to Alice has been hard to come by. Tonight, I forced myself to dedicate the time to her. She’s been lingering in my thoughts and while I tried not to focus on energy plot specific items, I’ve been longing to get back to the book to see where she takes me.
Of course, another two thousand words tonight brought unexpected surprises. I finally feel comfortable with the process and the work and love every minute of it. Too bad you can’t see the blurred spots.
