Day 14 of Agent Search:
I am pushing myself to come to the page when all I want to do is avoid it. Everything that could go wrong this morning did. And I haven’t even left the house yet.
Where am I placing the order of events? When will things happen?
Today I woke up in a bad mood. I was extremely angry. I have been feeling this way for the past few days. But today I have decided to write the anger through my characters. Today I will allow my characters to express the rage and anger they feel towards the people/situations they are at odds with.
Who are they going up against?
My writing process for the most part is fueled by my wanting to be in the “RIGHT” head space for writing. To have the perfect setting and circumstances. I have always wanted my writing sessions to be peace-filled, clear and clutter-free. At least that’s the dream I’ve been trying to sell myself. What if we just write through the chaos?
Today I am angry and I will push my characters to tell me what makes THEM angry. There is no perfect scenario for writing. Write when there’s flow. Write when your pissed off! Just write!
Writing goals for today — working on Parsley and studying my craft.
I WORK! I WRITE! I STAY WITH IT! EVERYDAY I WRITE! AND I AM REMEMBERING TO SLOW DOWN!
“Evil is relative – and what I mean by that is that our villains are as complex, as deep and as compelling as any of our heroes. Every antagonist in the DC Universe has a unique darkness, desire and drive. And the reason for being of ‘Forever Evil’ is to explore that darkness.”
(1) Ayida, why are you mad? Dolores, what do you have to be angry about? (Ask of your story, character, scenes, symbols or themes every question you would ask about their motivation and intention. What do we want to say?) Set timer for (1 hour)
Check in later. Happy writing! Wishing you all an amazing day!
