- I have no idea yet how I'm going to pitch this new version to an agent.
- That's a really good question ... let me get back to you in a few days ...
So you're probably thinking, oh god, poor delusional writer wannabe-person. If you can't answer those 2 simple questions, why not give up now? Well, from the supportive feedback I've gotten so far, I know you're not really saying that, but of course, my "inner demon" is! But my guardian angels of writing (I commented on someone's blog that that's how I think of all those supportive elementary school teachers who encouraged my creative writing endeavors through the years) keep whispering, "Ignore that d@#n demon!"
So here's the deal: it's not that I'm completely in the dark as to the theme and story structure of Draft #2. It's just that, at the moment, it's sort of like a fascinating dream I've just woken up from. I know it was good, and that it captivated me while I was having it, but upon waking, the edges become blurred, and I can't articulate exactly what it was about that dream that made it so enthralling. That's pretty much how I feel about my current storyline. It's embedded in the recesses of my mind right now, but each day, I come a little closer to being able to put it into words. So I'm confident that, once I work through a few more characterization exercises, and eventually get around to putting "pen-to-paper," I'll be able to share the wonder and glory of what's going on deep inside my head with all of you!
