I think so, too!
Except when I've chased a character up it! Not so peaceful now.
Okay, I’ve chased my main character up the literary tree and I'm throwing rocks at her. It’s painful, oh so painful, but too, too good at the same time. Plus, I know that a couple bigger rocks are coming—poor kid. Watch out! It’s going to hurt. (But remember I love you!)
Does it hurt less if the rocks are heart shaped?
It’s the getting her down part that’s going to be hard, at least for me. I’m not sure how to get her down yet. Oh, man! Does this mean I’ve got some personal learning to do myself?
This last bit of revising, I think, is probably the most challenging. (Stephanie, how is it for you?) I don’t know about the other writers reading this out there somewhere, but in order to get through the rough draft, I had to plow forward and just finish...even though that meant tidying things up in neat and easy ways that came off contrived. Hey! It worked and I finished the rough draft, right? But now, the real stuff has to happen. You know? Some truth. A new ending must be written, and even though I know how it has to end, I still have to figure out how to get to that very last word. Not easy! Not easy, Friends!
Ah! Thanks. I feel better.
