words, Roxanne, words

type 1

I’ve been trying to write a novel for a few months now, and I just couldn’t get the voice right. I would write a thousand words but it just never felt right. It just wasn’t me, nor the character.

Recently, I have been doing some free writing – where I just sit down and write anything for 10 or 15 minutes. (Yes, sometimes with an image prompt – oh, you noticed?)

This week I started writing and suddenly I knew I had the voice for my character. I had the name, I had the personality, and more elements of the story just seemed to pop out of the neurones in my brain.

Delete, cut and paste, create and I had two thousand fresh words that I loved.

Happy, creative Flamingo Dancer,
