One of the things I'm really learning this year is to trust my process. I blogged earlier about being a pantser and trusting my characters to reveal the layers of themselves as I go on - I don't need to know it all at the beginning and that's okay. It will happen. Because it always does. Trying to nail them down too soon sometimes means I write myself into a box. And my process is unique to me. My process will also change and morph as I grow as a writer and that's okay too. Really, I just need to chillax about it.
I did my casting for this book and next up was a song - 3 weeks ago. Nothing was working. But I was like...whatever. The right song will turn up because it always does. I love having a new song for a book. Sometimes there's more than one, and sometimes what was the right song gets punted for a new one as the book goes on. But rather than look and look and look, I waited. The universe has ways of sending me what I need.
The universe spoke last night and so I'm off to i-tunes to download Hedley's Perfect. But just so you know what it sounds like, here's a you tube clip. The video didn't fit my perception of the song so I let the lyrics do the work.
NOW I'm ready to get back to work.
