A New Approach

This one is gonna be a short post. Why, you ask? Well, because we’ve had another late night in the household. It’s 11:15 PM and the kids are finally asleep. The baby, who was up every hour last night, fell asleep at 10:00ish. We think he’s getting a tooth. That daughter, in full meltdown mode, fought sleep with every fiber of her being. She had a nap today, which gives her that extra nighttime sleep fighting energy.

Anyhow, I made a little progress this week in my writing. I attempted to start a new story. I’m not sure if anything will come of it, but I’m hopeful. It’s such a nice feeling, even if I’ve only written a few paragraphs so far.

This story is a bit of a departure for me in a way. First, I’m writing it on paper. This pains me in a way because I know I’ll have to type it up later. Still, it keeps me writing and not surfing the web.

Secondly, I’m writing this one in first-person. I’ve never done that before. It always felt like cheating to me, for some reason. Maybe because it seems so easy for me to write in first-person. I don’t know. What I do know is that I really feel I know this protagonist in the story, mostly because I have to to write it in first-person. This is something I’ve lacked in my other writing.

OK, time for me to sleep. That is what’s going on with me. Hope you are all well.
