I have hurdled page 200 in my latest novel ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL. Having fallen deeply in love with two of the characters, I hope this book is as good as I think it is. I'm at that point in the storytelling process where I think I know what's going to happen next, and I think, I have a good idea, about the ending, but I never really know.
My favorite thing about crafting a story is when the story and the characters start crafting me. The story takes over, and I sit here trying to find the right words to tell their story. My main character, Gloria, compels me to paint and make collages.
I am enamored of Gloria. As my friend Annie says, "I'm living a duel life." It's pretty wonderful. Both of them. :-O
