The Brilliance of Me
Playing in iTunes: "Laundry" by Say Hi to Your Mom
I almost didn't have anything to write about today *gasp* but last night, I finished an absolutely genius scene!! I accidentally introduced a character that brought everything together, while at the same time causing, even me, to go "Nuh, uh!!!" It was brilliant....
At least, I hope it was brilliant. Oh god. What if I just hinged my entire book on a character that I haven't previously developed!!?? What if I go back and read the book and realize it doesn't make any sense because I forgot one crucial plot line??!! WHAT IF MY READERS READ THIS AND THINK IT ABSOLUTELY BORING AND UNORIGINAL!!?? WHAT IF IT'S BEEN DONE BEFORE??????!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Terra? Put down the computer...."
"Who are you!?"
"Ummm.....your inner writer."
"Oh good! Do you think the scene was brilliant?"
Right. Sorry about that.
