there comes a time in every aspiring author's journey when she'll be forced to make a choice: keep on fighting for her novel or cast it aside.
time to cast.
it may be temporary or could very likely be permanent. either way, i've done all i can for this manuscript and we both need a rest.
sad thing is, i feel i'm cutting off a group of close friends...friends with particular smiles and quirks all their own that no one will ever get to know.
BUT i have more characters that are just beginning to come to life--we'll see where they take me.
and looking forward, this song paints the world i'm building perfectly. enjoy:
