The Writing Rush

The writing rush is the fact that you have so much of a novel or story ready in your head or outlined, but you are afraid to overwrite and burn out. (Most I’ve written in a day is 21,000 words. But I was down for two days later.)

I love when I write and then even when I put it down I want to get back to it. While I cook or clean, I think about when can I get the next chance to write again. It makes me excited the awake up the next day. 

I will write so much and walk away leaving myself desiring more. I hate ending, because I lose that clingy feeling. It’s like a writing drug. . . My muses are excited, I’m excited. . .  The only thing is if I leave a part in my head unwritten, my anxiety gets scared that I forgot about it. So I have written notes, mini outlines, and post it’s for the next day. 

I have 15 days until November 1st I’m very excited.

Confession #5: I hate endings

I hate endings. . .
I hate writing them.
I hate reading them.
I hate when the book is done.

I love the fresh, new beginning. The nervousness, the excitement of the unknown. NOT endings, I hate how all endings are just over.

I like staying in the path. . .  just keep moving.
I love crossroads where you can stay, go back or keep going.
I enjoy look at tunnel knowing there is still a journey a head. I hate the light at the end. . . it’s over.

Sorry, I just finished reading a book. 

You put all of the energy to love or hate the characters and just as everything figures itself out . . . it’s all done.

I’m not saying some endings are bad, some are brilliant. However those who end with leaving me on the edge. This book did that . . . yes I know it’s a trilogy, so on to book two. (I’m done with my rant.)
