I scheduled a vacation day yesterday and was lucky it happened to fall on one of the best weather days of the year so far. Living in Pennsylvania, it has been a long, cold, winter and any day above 50 degrees is greatly appreciated. I was able to spend some time outside planting flowers and getting rid of the dead flowers. I think the couple hours I spent in the sun really rejuvenated me.
Toward the end of the day I was able to start my next writing project, which I hope will develop into my first novel. As of now, the story could be best described as a super-hero comedy. I was able to write 300-500 words yesterday. It felt really good to start this project and I am actually enjoying writing this one. I’m writing this one for myself and for the experience of writing a novel, as I don’t know if there is a market for super-hero comedy. On the other hand, I don’t really care, and I don’t know if I really should care at this point. The great thing, though, is that I already care about the protagonist, which I think is a good thing. After all, how can I convince an audience to care about the main character in a story if I don’t care about him/her.
