Writing ain't easy, even when you have a dictonary, a thesaurus and a very good spell checker. I've got these characters, see, and each one of them have about 30 to 50,000 words written about them. They're well developed, well endowed characters, if I may say without a trace of humor or cynicism, with no pun intended. So, why is it so difficult to tell a story about them? Huh? This character-driven fiction is the stuff of anxiety attacks and writer's block. I've developed these characters, gotten them to the point that they seem to be fairly three-dimensional, but now they're resisting telling any kind of story about them. And a novel can't simply be a series of character studies. There also has to be a story!
Okay, so I'm whining, but writing this novel has become hard. Boo-hoo. Boo-hoo-hoo. Sniffle. Sniffle. Nose-fart.
