read the word yesterday and scribbled itLIKED IT
1: situated at the farthest or most distant point
2: of the greatest or highest degree, quantity, number, or amount
thought i had never written the word but i was wrong. i used it once (!) in three novels commanding over 384,000 + all the other writings i have! why is this a worthy snippet? don’t now. but it is.
Osaka, Japan — October 6, 1999
I love Sara. She was my first character ever. When I wrote, as I headed to work in New York City on a train, of a woman in despair speaking to a friend, Sara was born. I didn’t know her name then, didn’t know anything about her. Well, not true, I knew she hurt … and so did the other passengers on the train car that morning.
that’s how i discovered writing
I am glad to have written this because Sara is in my third novel and I had forgotten how she was. I made her into who I want her to be in the new novel but it isn’t right. Will have to adjust as I continue to write and as I edit. Which I started this week
in case i decide to write the novel
into two books. Was going to wait until I finish the manuscript before editing, but now that I think I have one book … hmm, maybe I will wait until I write more. But it has grown so much since the last time I read it! The issue is that right now, I am a little lost in it and figured reading it from the beginning may help. But that doesn’t make sense. When have I?
it’s time to read: IT’S HOW I WRITE
originally, i began this post for the uncategorized category, it was about a word but it morphed. the novel excerpt was the end. now i’m glad i went on. see ya!
