Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

NPI: Day 5

I feels to me right now that writing can be such an emotional roller coaster. I've had so much on my mind that I've had to take the time to write it out. This feels like a break in my WIP but it seems necessary for my emotional well-being. In the end, I hope that these thoughts will help a future WIP in some small way. If not, it has been great creative writing practice.

A thought written from Day 4:

In the never ending years of dreams and living, one starts to realize that all we have to share with others is our time. This is what matters. This is what we all want and desire. To share time with others. A simple act of gathering together to share a meal and eat together does more than nourish the body, it enriches our soul. The basic need of eating coupled with the basic desire to spend time with others and feel loved is precious. This is why we must reach out. We must never ignore love. In the end, it is all we have.

Writing for therapy is definately going to be helpful to your WIP. Getting your own feelings sorted out on paper will 1. help you be able to write your characters without mixing yourself into them when you shouldn't and 2. give you experience writing about those particular emotions. You'll be able to put your characters in those emotions later no matter what you're feeling at the time.

And good for you for sharing exerpts. I'm really inexperienced with sharing my writing. That's something I really need to work on if I'm going to ever be able to get published. You're an inspiration to me!

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
