1. Excellent description of the process!
    I recall being caught up in the climax of a story I was writing. I had so many characters that the climax was taking me days to write. Being a teen at the time, my parents got on my case for being snappy and moody. I didn’t dare tell them that this story had me by the emotions, and I’d be all right as soon as I finished. I was living the anguish and excitement the characters were going through.
    Gosh, though, the feedback from my readers was terrific. I’d taken them all the places I’d gone.

    That’s one of the problems I have with my writing classes–I have to tick off all these boxes and it drives me nuts.

  3. What a great analogy!  I’ve usually seen writing compared to parenting, not to falling in love.  I think this is actually a better comparison.  🙂
