Embracing Me

So this the first post of the new year… and truth be told I haven’t done a lot of writing so far. I tried to write a short story back in January but that fell by the wayside. I attempted (briefly) to edit my novel from November but that too seemed to be impossibly difficult. Instead I focused inward and really looked at what sort of stories I wanted to write.

I thought that I had stumbled upon the answer… that I wanted to be known for great contemporary love stories. Real world fiction as it were. Books in the general fiction section. But, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I couldn’t just pick a genre out of the hat and say that that is what I’m going to write.

No, I decided that I would have to embrace whatever stories my muses decided to tell. Last November it was a Science-Fiction story, the year before that it was YA Contemporary Fantasy, the year before that it was Detective. I have to write the stories that are in me to write. I have ideas and notions and when the right story comes along, I will write it… and try to pursue it to publication in one form or another.

^_^ It feels as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I find myself suddenly able to edit and add to that which has been incomplete for over three months… and the next project will be re-writing my time travel story which is another story that just won’t let me go. ^_^

I don’t want to jinx myself, but I would like to think that my muses are warming up again.
