Today's (very brief) blog is about one of my favorite parts of writing: the beginning.
Not the actual beginning, since opening sentences can be really hard to get right (or at least not overthink). But the very beginning, the minute the sperm starts burrowing into the egg. So to speak.
I have one of those, and it's such a good feeling. These are the happiest days for me, when it's all ideas and thoughts and lying on the bed in my pajamas with tea, eyes closed, imagining and scheming and plotting and wondering.
Making me happiest right now:
New characters who need names.
A whole new era to explore, which means LIBRARY TIME.
Taking the loose threads hanging off this idea and braiding them together into something that resembles a story.
Do you like the very beginning stages of projects? Or are you more comfortable when it's time to actually write?
