Happier Endings

Writing Day: 5

Word Count: 12,976

It turns out this woman I met on lavalife went to high school one year ahead of me. We have a number of the same friends. I found picture in the yearbook, and even back then she was mad-gorgeous. Naturally she doesn’t think so.

She has a daughter, who’s now in the terrible twos, and she wants to use her experiences to make some children’s books. I won’t talk about her ideas, but I think they’re brilliant.

As for my own writing, my fantasy stories, right now there’s a long one that accounts for most of the writing I’ve done. The more I think about it, the more I don’t like the ending. It’s not a very happy one, and it also doesn’t necessarily make good use of the theme, (which is a combination of “there’s some good in all people,” and the dichotomy of courage and cowardice.) Nonetheless, I have many other aspects of the story to work through first, so maybe, hopefully, my better ending will come to me while I complete the rest of the story. Anyway, I’m happy to say I got back on the writing wagon today, and my first long story is shaping quite nicely.

There is a great synchronicity in life that you met up with someone who was only a year ahead of you in school. :) She sounds really nice, I hope things go well for you. That is great you got back writing today. Endings are so hard, good luck with wrapping up your story. It sounds very interesting.
