The one thing I dislike about the writing process is the sometimes-loneliness of it all. Readers only get to see the glamour part of a bound book, not some of the agonizing moments one has while constructing it.
– Mary Rodgers
Interestingly enough this is not so for me. I venture into the story together with my characters. They set off, and I tag along, seeing and writing down what mischief they bring about, or what situations they end up in (and how they get out of them again).
My only problem sometimes is that I must work like crazy to keep up with them. (i am very glad I can type fast.)
Writing like Mary Rodgers has not hit me often. I do recall a few times that I knew where I was (in the story) and where I wanted to go, but that it took a while to find the bridge to get there. And to be honest: it is nice to have a break from all these adventures once in a while.
How does that work for you, dear reader, if you are an author as well?
