I see pretend people.

I think there may be something wrong with me. I’m like a novelist, only notsomuch. See, I have these stories in my head. Good stories, unique stories.

And people. I have these people in my head, the characters in my stories. There up there, wandering around begging me to let them out.

I have stories to tell, but the place where I begin to have a little hiccup is the writing portion of writing.

These stories are floating around in my head, getting in the way of, well, you know, reality. But I open the word document and get a few chapters in and give up. It’s not right. It’s not the story that is in my head. The people in my head look different on paper. I can’t seem to get the stories to look the same on paper as they do in my head.

Do they have a pill for this? I think there is something wrong with me.

Must suggest www.nanowrimo.org (novel in a month, takes place in november every year) and/or www.scriptfrenzy.org (script in a month, takes place in april). I've done nano for 7 years now, and this is the/my 2nd year for SF

Oh, I know what you mean (love the title, BTW!) The best thing I know to do sometimes is to just start somewhere. It doesn't have to be the beginning. The beginning can be so intimidating.

I have some characters floating around in my poor little pea brain, too. They are children's book characters, so I'm enjoying them LOL!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Loved your comment! :-)
