I don’t like to be mean. I really don’t like to be mean. Sometimes, I just feel so awful about the things that happen to my characters. The first section is about military training, and my goodness! I started to feel tired as I wrote about my MC’s exhaustion! Hopefully that means I’m doing something right.
One problem is that I’ve never been super athletic (my poor father, I think it drove him crazy). So how do I know what running five miles and doing fifty pushups is like? Writing about all this physical toning is inspiring to get out and get exercise, which is most definitely a good thing. 😀
And, when I was tired the other day and not sure what to write, I went for a jog, took a shower, and then wrote five pages. Yippee!
