Week 44 — Outtake #1
You want a revelation
Some kind of revolution
You are the revelation
— Florence + The Machine — No Light, No Light
You know when you have a revelation about your writing? Kind of an epiphany about a character that you considered too shallow, too plain? And when friends help you out and it just clicks, you can feel the story flowing again. I was with R. yesterday, complaining about the one-dimensionality of my NaNo main character, and she said 'well, have her kill someone'. As if it was the easiest thing in the world — and it was! That little thing, that small piece of blood on her hands changed everything. And made me write again, at last.
