Why write?

The best thing about writing fiction is that moment where the story catches fire and comes to life on the page, and suddenly it all makes sense and you know what it's about and why you're doing it and what these people are saying and doing, and you get to feel like both the creator and the audience. Everything is suddenly both obvious and surprising ("but of course that's why he was doing that, and that means that...") and it's magic and wonderful and strange.

You don't live there always when you write. Mostly it's a long hard walk. Sometimes it's a trudge through fog and you're scared you've lost your way and can't remember why you set out in the first place.

But sometimes you fly, and that pays for everything.

- Neil Gaiman

Was today a long hard walk, Nano Writer or was it a day for flying?


Today's quotation was submitted by Nano Writer [personal profile] elleth (thanks!)

Today was a little foggy for me, spending some of the day sketching out some ideas for my climatic scene and the death of one of my characters. But tomorrow should be clear skies (I hope).

Today's word count is 36,667. How was today's writing? Excerpts, questions, comments? Remember everything's good! Keep writing!
