ravenela: (McKenna/Tristan - original story)
[personal profile] ravenela
Happy Monday, everyone! We're fresh off the weekend and all the SDCC excitement. So much picture and video pretty that I can't even process. The Man of Steel and Henry Cavill fangirl in me is flailing.

But now, it's time to put my author hat back on. See the icon there? That's my two MCs from WHITE SPIRIT - McKenna and Tristan. The manip isn't great, but the icon doesn't look too bad.

Anyway, time to check in with my #writemotivation goals. If you're playing along, and I haven't commented on your blog yet, please let me know.

1) Get halfway through the edits on WHITE SPIRIT.

Still moving along. I'm stuck at chapter five because it's a very emotional chapter. I want to make sure I'm showing the emotion and that Tristan isn't wimping out on me. I'm having trouble striking that balance. Anybody got any tips?

2) Work on it every day.

Not a good week for it. I missed three days. It was entirely my fault for being lazy. Argh!

So, how is your writing/editing/creative project coming?

When I'm writing emotional scenes, it helps if I can find some music (or multiple songs) that put me in the same mood I'm trying to convey. Good luck!

Great Job

Great job. Sometimes you just have to be lazy. I cherish those moments then jump back on the saddle.

Emotional scenes are rough. I do the same as the other commenter and put on some music that will get me in the mood or I'll watch a TV show or movie I know will get me in the mood I need to do for a particular scene. It works for the most part.

Keep up the fantastic work! :-)

Still, Progress is progress. :) I wish I could help you with your chapter. Emotions, for me, are more powerful raw. I usually have to feel it to write it. And, sometimes, it just doesn't work and I have to come back to it.

As for my writing, I've managed to re-write a short story and now contemplating my next while I wait for crits...hate this part :)
