It's A Brave New World
I recently was reading an article about transition in writing and realized that I'm going through my own major changes. Not with, say a scene. or even a chapter, but writing all together.
Since Toni decided to leave our duo, I've had to come to terms with our voice together would not be the same as mine alone. But it's not going to be for the lack of trying.
It is frustrating in the first place, when you write a chapter that's completely rough draft, and then you go back through trying to make it flow better, and it just doesn't sound the same. Well, and again, for obvious reasons.
I do plan to work on this because I know our voices together made for an awesome book and I don't want to let anyone down. I know the story will be there, but I can't 100% guarantee its style being what you are used to from us.
It's true, this is only the beginning of this transition and as time goes on it should get better. So bare with me, it might take a little extra time, but I am hoping the outcome will be all worth it!
Are you a reader who is sensitive to the writers voice? Or are you a writer who's style is not where you would like to see it? Let me know your thoughts on the writers voice.
On a lighter note, I am working on the website and plan to get a lot finished in the next two weeks. It was a rough week for me and my head wasn't in it, but I'm getting better.
Have a great week all. I hope your looking forward to Fall, I know I am. We are going to Buena Vista in a month to enjoy the wonderful fall colors and soak in the hot springs. I look forward to some relaxation. I know I need it!
