Gone Writing…

My writer’s block is finally over! Hallelujah!

On Friday night, after I saw this cute little indie movie “Love and Other Disasters” (check it out, it’s so cute and entertaining!) on DVD, I suddenly felt this strong urge to write.

So I sat behind my faithful Mac (I named it “Mei Mei” – Chinese for “little sister”, actually) and suddenly, a story just popped into my head and I started typing furiously.

So I’m finally back on track in writing my new novel – and in the next few weeks (it really depends how long it’ll take me to write this one. Usually – barring any more writer’s block – it takes me about three to four weeks to finish writing a short novel) I might not be actively blogging since I need to concentrate all my energy into my novel.

But I’ll pop in from time to time to share my progress on the novel. So far, I’ve written about two chapters – had to stop writing on Saturday and Sunday, had too much to do and pressing matters to attend to – so I can’t tell you yet what the novel is all about (honestly, I don’t really know myself. Usually my characters just take me along for a wild and crazy ride), but I know that it’ll have these elements in it:

Friendship.

Love.

Heartbreak. (Because you can’t have “love” without all the drama and complications)

Break ups and break downs.

Longing.

Self-searching and discovery.

Escaping…

And all the baggage that comes with it…

And happy endings.

Why happy endings? Because it’s fiction, not life.

Like Jane Austen, I believe in giving people happy endings. Life is hard enough as it is… I want my readers to get the endings they want, the ones they may not ever get in real life.

And with that, I shall bid you adieu and get back to my novel.

See you soon-ish.

  5. isn’t it awesome when the muse comes a-knockin’? I always tell myself that even when I’m not writing or creating, it’s okay to rest – you need to recharge sometimes in order to really get the project moving.
