I really did have aspirations of having a blog post go up on Monday, but now it is Wednesday night and I just opened my blog for the first time in weeks. But I have thought repeatedly about things I'd like to say and just haven't remembered to do it. For those of you still here, thanks for sticking around.
I'm working on a project right now that I have taken over a month to really plot out. I used to think I was a pantser, but I'm not, and plotting it taking longer than I would have liked (there's this job that keeps getting in the way), but it has been interesting, during the plotting, how much I have come to know about my characters before I even really wrote them.
I am a fast person - I walk fast, talk fast, get things done fast - so teaching myself to write and think and process slowly has been hard, but I can already tell my characters, plot, nuances are benefiting from my dedication to the time.
I have been reading some really great works lately too, so I'm planning on getting back in the blogging game. In the meantime, and since I've been offline for a while, what are your favorite blogs, new book you just discovered, or fantastic news I might have missed. C'mon guys, get me caught back up :)
