|"Write me! Write me!" - Petulant paper dolls|
My dear Writing Goddess,
It's been a few months since I last wrote. I do hope your twittering is coming along splendidly.
My reason for writing is this, -I keep hearing voices. Yes. Inside. My. Head. Not my own! It's all 'the others'. Ahem, these characters who won't leave me alone. For instance, this morning whilst standing at the train station waiting on my 8:05 to the city, one lady snuck up behind me, hissing in my ear; another tugged earnestly at my sleeve. "Write me next, dear scribe." And lately, they've become a rowdy bunch so I've promised them a few lines every now and then.
The thing is, dear WG, I need to focus on my edits, and this noisy bunch won't pipe down, -if you could send some writerly advice my way. Even as I write this, they sit on the edge of my desk tapping their nails. Martinis and manicures don't seem to cut it with this lot.
Yours as ever,
Reply from Writing Goddess:
Dear Ms A.Scribe,
Thank you for your note. Our dear Writing Goddess is currently out of the office on urgent business, sorting out Christmas orders and special giveaways.
In the meantime, I suggest you show those wily characters who's the boss and shoo them away! Focus. On. Your. Revisions. Got it? - Good. And you can certainly send the martini and manicures my way.
Your ever devoted,

Confession time: Whilst writing my main WIP, I've been distracted along the way by other characters wanting their stories written. How many? Five at last count. How about you? Any characters disturbing your peace? How many WIP's are you working on?
