I have been on a some very weird, amusing bumps on my current writing path.
I normally write about ghost stories, vampire luring karmic victims, abandoned places, and urban legends. I enjoy the horror, the dark lust, the karmic justice, and just the decent history of a good ghost story. Why did the dark evil beings simply become that way . . .
However lately my muses have me writing a light mystery romance.
I’m not sure why? I think I am the least romantic person I know.
I’m practical. . . I rather have a bouquet of pens or candy, not flowers. I HATE to dress up. I refuse to wear make-up or heels.
If a guy can’t accept me for me, then he can just go away. (I don’t need another disappointment in my life.)
I’m getting off my point. I’m working on a romance story, kind of. However my characters are on two different paths, which is not really a problem I am worried about. BUT. . . I had to write a scene in which I argued with muses and tried for days to avoid. I had to kill my main female character’s cat. (I’m a huge cat lover and yet my muses said: the cat escaped, things like that happen, and it to build my characters closer.)
I did finally caved in. I didn’t let my muses get detailed thank God, but it was a simple phone call that I toyed over for days. Once I let my muses take over, it was written in less than hour and the band-aid was off and the main male character comforted her.
However has this happened to other writers? Have you avoid muses or a scene because it simply made you feel bad or comfortable?
I feel I am growing as writer and simply as person for facing it. I feel I am looking at it from the villain and hero perspective.
Maybe I’m practicing romance for scenes in my vampire novels., fanged monsters can love too.
Note: I do plan to post this light mystery romance story on my wattpadd. (Links on my pinned blog page)
