I’m getting the itch to write again. My first goal on my 30-ish Before 30 list is to write a short story or novella. I don’t care if it ever gets sent it to a publisher; I just want to write. I have 18 1/2 months to finish before my 30th birthday. I really think I can do it.
I don’t know what it is about writing that is just so therapeutic. I began a novella/novel a few years ago and never finished it. I created my entire outline and wrote the first seven chapters…and then I got burned out on my main character. She just wasn’t enough. My story was just too boring. I think I just didn’t know enough about my character or about the depth of information I needed for her career and life experience.
So, I have a feeling that whatever is about to come out in story form from me, is going to be something I’ve lived through. Or maybe something very personal to me. I’m not sure what it is yet. But I can feel it beginning to bubble. It’s weird.
We’ll see what happens.
