Blogging my Wip: The Price I Pay
Myra finds this out the hard way, when being a Christian Mystery Author turns out to be a reason to fear.
This is not one of her novels, this is her life, and it is becoming a living nightmare.
She can still hear the gunshots, still feel herself collapsing, and then nothing, nothing until she wakes up in the hospital.
Dear Lord, why is this happening to me?
Obviously I am working on another book, actually the idea for this one happened a couple of years ago, but I got so busy with Finding Star, which I will be working one last time, to make ready for Kindle, and because I am so passionate about this book I have good feelings of where the story in Finding Star may go.
Have my other writing friends had a Character like Star, or like Myra one that sticks with you and begs to be written, and then when you find the story is done, you actually grieve over the loss. Perhaps that is why I hate killing off my characters, because in my mind I may as well be killing off my loved ones. I believe it was Anne Lamont who described writing like giving birth, the character is inside you, you create it, and watch it grow, but sometimes something goes wrong, and you have to let that character go, you have to write the story in the way the character directs you.
My fans notice I write a lot about people with disabilities, because that is a subject matter I am passionate about, because I want to show the world that just because someone is a little different, just because they use a chair, can't hear well, can't see or whatever the case maybe, does not mean they do not live a full active life.
In the Marishka Tanya Alexei series, the main character happens to be a cop, who just happens to be in a chair, but she can still bring the bad guys down.
The Price I Pay is still a work in progress, but I have a feeling Myra will have a few tricks up her sleeve. I am just really starting to get to know her, and understand her character. And I know th lord is her strength. Just as he is mine.
Well friends, Happy Reading, and Have a Very Merry Christmas, may you be blessed with many books, Kindles and Nooks!!!
