Each time I write a new story, I’m finding the story gets more involved and more detailed than the last one. Initially, I struggled with the idea of spending a couple of hours, with no research of details needed for the story. Now I’m finding i spend days, and hours each day, building the story, crafting the plot, developing the characters, working with the pace of the story, inserting the dialogue. It’s becoming a lonely, long process. I’m obviously in a learning mode with each experiment. Still, I’m trusting in the satisfaction of getting it done. My hope: that I offer the reader some feeling of experiencing life in a new and rewarding way, maybe even a life changing way.
