Most writers have a certain scene stuck in their head when they write. I know I do. I feel compelled to write because I can see certain parts of my story so clearly. I know exactly what needs to happen before I can write the scene that I’ve thought about for weeks. Sometimes it is the beginning of the story. Sometimes it’s a random part. Sometimes it is the climax.
I had four of those scenes stuck in my head when I started this project. Now that I am in my final two weeks of writing, I have written out three of those four scenes. Nothing is more satisfying that being able to write out a scene in such a way that gives it justice. It’s a surprisingly hard thing to accomplish. Sometimes these scenes have been in my mind for years. When you finally write it out, you don’t want to get a detail wrong.
Damn. Writing with passion complicates everything. Hmmm…sounds about right.
