I have posted about working on a story for 20 years a few time on here. A friend of mine helped me see that I needed to step back and see where things were going with my story. Things change in 20 years as well as point of views. I found the real main character who I had been silencing for a long time. Her point of view is where things should have started from, but it took me a while to see that. Things are flowing much better now and it will be a story some people can relate with.
Last night, I had an idea for the ending and typed it out. As I was doing that, I began to cry. I could see and feel what was going on in the scene and with the characters. Even though I will be happy to get finished and go through the process of publishing, it’s sad at the same time. Here are these characters I have gotten to know since I was 13, who have been like my best friends, and they are going to be gone soon. There is somewhat of a happy ending for them, but it’s going to be a depressing time for me.
