I’m starting to get into these blog-minis. Short and sweet with no definite point except what I’m up to.
Anyway, after getting Friday’s post all set, I decided to open up a new Word document. The big blank page and I stared at each other for a bit while I thought about what to write. I had an idea for a character in my head, but not a shred of plot to go along with it. So, I just picked a situation and dropped him in it to see what would happen.
Oh, the FUN that was had.
It’s been a while since I put myself in a character’s head. To think like him, feel like him and make him do the things I think he’d do. Fun, fun, fun. The writing session was quick and at the end I had a few hundred words and a much clearer idea of what this story could be.
Before you too excited, if this does become a story with a plot and shit, it’ll be a long while before it sees the light of day. For now, it’s my plotless story for my enjoyment. But if I like it enough, I’ll of course want to share.
