micropoem for the day: characters and a new day

No life is boring when you get right down to it. Everyone has an inner life. And there’s no character who is uninteresting. Although Jason came close to it. His life was so routine the trains set their schedule by it. Look deep enough and there’s something there. Jason may have had a family life so chaotic that he went in the opposite direction. Who’s to know unless the writer looks deep and let’s Jason bear his soul in some unexpected moment.

Writing a story is like falling in love. When I fall in love with a character, then I know I have a story. I want to know more and more and more. And more. The moment I quit looking deep into the soul of that character, I know I’m done for. That’s when ye olde writer’s block drops on my head.

sipping coffee
reading a book, then writing
the start of a new day.
