Autumn gales have started late last night and while we have glorious blue skies where tufts of clouds chase each other, the wind is a killer. Even in the sun, it is cold as the wind chills a body well into the bones. Our small little farm house is groaning and creaking in the eaves as the storms hit it with full force.
From late last night 'til now, I have been writing the worst, most difficult scene I have written so far in all my life, typing out words, reading them, deleting them, typing words again, deleting these in turn as well. This scene was difficult to write as I wanted to have some sort of consolation but not with BIG emotions and confessions of love following it. It was either too sappy, the heroine too teary-eyed or the hero just coming off as a crazy stalker who pressures my heroine into liking him. Hopefully I have found a middle ground now where I could resolve some issues but leave them at a strained kind of impasse leading up to the smut scene and the following fall out between the two (hey they are shooting a kdrama after all LOL).
Never in my life have I taken my writing so seriously like this year. I know I'm not an outstanding writer, I have learnt early on in my studies that I will never write the great English novel of the 21st century nor will I ever make any money from my writing, but this time around I have noticed that this is not just a pleasant past time but that I want to create something genuine, something others will enjoy as well. Not because they are friends or share the fandom but because they love drama and romance and enjoy reading a good story. So I try to make this the best I can.
