A Different Message

October 24, 2016

Good morning. My heart tells me to write another kind of message this morning.
I am humbled to have a mind that allows me to step into the lives of characters who live on the pages of my books. When I sit down to write, I have a vague idea where I want to go, but soon the characters take over, they PUT into my head what to write, they also will trouble my sleep if I’ve not followed their guidance. I am awed sometimes at the extreme where their voices tell me to go. As in my last book, my heart would race at the violent moments that they took my mind and wrote the different passages of the scenes that stopped my breath until I saw a way out. I felt a sense of connection that carried me through to the end, and when I was writing the last sentence, my heroine whispered to me, “You listened good.”
