Okay, so, I think most of you read my post a couple of weeks ago about the voices in my head (which are all character voices, of course). Recently though, my voices (or characters, rather) have been ignoring me. Believe me when I say, I've tried everything to get them to speak to me--bribed them with with shiny toys, hot boys, and even chocolate--but nothing worked.
That's when, last Thursday when I was driving home from work--minding my own business, singing along with Paramore, out loud--someone spoke up.
The voices were back!
And my first thought was: YES! My voices are back! (It's a writer thing. I don't think normal people have voices, that would just be crazy. LOL!)
But after listening carefully for a few moments, I realized that the voice I was hearing wasn't one of my old friends, but someone new. A new voice. A new story. And this girl was more than willing to fill me in on her story--which is very, very exciting and kind of messed up, but I absolutely fell in love with it!
I actually had to kindly ask her to "shut up" that night so I could get some sleep. And she listened.
Who knew there were actually characters out there that wanted to share their story, and might actually care about us, the lowly writers? It's like a miracle or something!!!
New story highs are always the best, and I'm definitely on one right now.
But my dilemma is:
Should I stop working on my current WIP, Static (if you call staring at a blank Word doc, while pulling out my hair "working") to see where this new story takes me?
Should I just jot down my ideas and stick it out with Static?
What would you do? I'm really interested to hear everyone's thoughts. :)
Sigh... don't you just love New Story High?? I think it might even be better than chocolate.
Have a great day!!!
