Another one bites the dust

and another one’s gone and another one’s gone…out the door. Winging it’s way to NYC. Wish me luck. I love this story…

Now on to another proposal. For Super this time. I like this story too, but I’m not at the point where I LOVE it. I’m not far enough into the characters’ heads just yet. I have to really write a bit, throw out some, write some more, change their names, etc, etc…until I really can start to LOVE what I’m writing. :love:

When do you fall in love with your story and your characters? At the thinking /pre writing stage? After 3 chapters? When you’re headed to the finish line? Do you LOVE what you write? (well, except for those days when you’re sure it’s all crap? :mrgreen: )

Good luck. I know it’s a great story.

Most days I still think it’s all crap but I’m getting better…:roll:

It depends. I’ve had stories I fell in love with right out of the box. Others had to grow on me. Sometimes they don’t ever grow on me. Sometimes I love one element and hate another.

I generally fall in love with my story/characters in the really early stages. Before things get too hard :rofl:, like the sagging middle :wallbash:.

Good luck with your proposal 🙂

I usually love the characters right from the idea stage, that’s what gets me excited about the story. And yes, I do usually love what I write in the end, although it seems there’s always room for improvement!

Yay on your proposal!!

As for the falling in love, I pretty much do that with all my heroes – the heroines have to grow on me. I think I always have to love the characters in general though – the plot stuff always drives me nuts.

Good luck on the proposal, Kacey!!

I have to be really eager about the characters and storyline to begin it, then as I work past the three chapters, I start to fall in love (hopefully!) because if I don’t, it’s just a chore to write it. 😆

Good luck, Kacey!!!

Some stories I love right away. Others I love the characters, but the story takes me longer to warm up to.

Way to go, Kacey! Getting it out the door is a BIG accomplishment! :beer:

I usually love my story from the get go – if I don’t, I can’t write it. Now whether I stay in love with the story or not is another question!

Congrats on mailing!

I usually love my stories from the get-go, then I re-read them and figure out that they’re garbage. Then I rewrite them until I find the diamond amid all the mess. :crazy2:

Mary January 21, 2006 at 7:12 am

I think I have to love a story to start writing it.

Danica January 22, 2006 at 10:43 pm

Wahoo! Congrats and Good luck!

It’s fleeting and irregular. lol Good luck with the proposal. Where did this one head? And good luck on the Super story too. I really want you to join me there. All about me, you know. :mrgreen:
