Here's where I'm at so far...
I wrote 1 brand new original story, I have dusted off 2 previous unfinished stories and am working to finish one of them in time for the release. And I also have the beginnings of a brand new story which I have been writing.
What's different about this edition of H & H is that I usually write in the first person, because my stories are all based on actual experiences. This is why I like to use the label -Magical Realism-.
But in this edition, at least one of the stories is pure imagination, and is not written in first person.
I was working on it this morning and was so relieved to see it waking up after such a long sleep. I originally began writing this story in July 2011, and it was the first time I began to realize that a story could actually tell itself to me. I began thinking of it as a living thing, which I still do. But alas, I got busy with other things and allowed the story to go into a deep slumber.
When I recently reread what I had started, I found myself very much wanting to read more of it. So I whispered a little encouragement -Please wake up-. It took a couple of days, but this morning it began to speak to me once more...
I couldn't be more excited. I can't wait to read what happens next.
