Writing Bug

I'm having WAY too much fun doing the Star Wars fanfic. :)

The characters are very real to me. Well, Vader was unnaturally very real to me ever since I was 8 years old. :) But the character I created, Darth Sentinel, is becoming a person to me. I actually care what happens to her. I want her to be happy.

*Happy Sigh*. This whole writing thing is rather addictive. :)

Oh, Chapter 3 is up on Darth Sentinel

[I'm in the middle of writing chapter 16 or 17, but delayed posting material. I wanted to have this mostly written before I started releasing it for public reading.]

I managed to find Blogger's policy on content. I think I'm going to have to tone down a few scenes. At first this bothered me, but I realize I'm not writing this to titillate, I'm writing this to entertain. And I think I'd like to not weird out my audience by anything too explicit. :P

As to future stories, I've already got a couple of story ideas for after this story is done. I don't want to spoil things by describing them, and they may drastically change in my head as my subconscious ruminates over them while I finish up Darth Sentinel. But I find myself excited by these new ideas, as well as excited by recent ideas for where the Darth Sentinel story is going to go...

In my real life, things are pretty much status quo. The dogs are doing well, but they keep getting into our newly planted vegetable planters. They were really good until plants started to break the surface of the dirt, and then it seemed to be all about knocking the things over! Or digging in them!

I think our dogs have gone over to the Dark Side. :P Sigh. I trained them too well.

Other stuff is normal. Work is work, for both me and my husband.

We both badly need a vacation! I could kill for 82 degree water, good visibility down to 100 feet, a clean beach, cool ocean life, and lots of margaritas for when my husband and I are done with scuba diving for the day. :)

Sigh. Soon. Somehow.

In the meantime, I get to keep writing. :)

I know what you mean. I've been working on a fantasy novel for some years now (and admittedly, it's not brilliant, but hey) and I feel like I'm a best friend of the main character or something. She's so real to me.
