I couldn’t sleep because I chugged Mt. Dew at 9:45 tonight (gotta have a little fun sometimes…) so I’m up writing!
I finally found it! I’m finishing this one. It’s going to include several poems in the story, and I started in on the first one just to kick off the writing process and start somewhere – and cried while writing it, and every time I went back to read what I had so far. i am definitely emotionally invested in this one. But that also means it’s hard to write. It was a very emotional experience writing just a small portion of what’s going on in this story – this is going to kill me. But it’s going to be bloody good.
It’s based on my life, at least what I wrote last night. I can’t decide whether or not I’m going to diverge and make it fictional or not, because my original idea was completely fictional but it ended up being based on me. So I’ll take it both routes and see which one I like better and then trash the other. Or it might end up being two completely different things I can use both of. We’ll see what happens! This is just the beginning and I am absolutely chuffed about it!
side note – maybe I’ll make it a screenplay?! I haven’t written one in awhile, and so far this story is so visual for me it might be better to be picturing it on screen…let the experimenting begin!
