Author – Science, Environment, Travel, Children's Books
I’m pouring ideas too fast… I have a concept for a young adult novel and it’s bubbling out of me all over the place.
Several days ago when I put pen to paper (Who am I kidding? When I put fingertip to laptop…) I was really enjoying the brevity of kid’s books. It was a fun exercise to write simply and succinctly in a very youthful tone. It was also nice to have a finished product quickly so I could start right away to receive feedback. I used to be pretty good at creative writing, but now I feel like I’m learning from scratch. I need some hand holding.
But gosh, now I just want to write and write and write! I have characters in mind, a plot, angst… oh God, the teen angst! So be prepared to see some excerpts in coming days. I will need both hands held. I’ve never attempted fiction of that length. And I will still write more kids books in the meantime. It’s fun, it’s an outlet, and maybe a really good one will come out of it at some point.
So that’s my course of action revised as of 10:06 tonight. When it changes again, I’ll let you know. And when I get overwhelmed, I’m hoping for some wise words from all of you to help me clean up the spill.
