Do you... ever feel weird about what you've written?
I mean, you put a character through hell, see her through with the worst day of her life, and then you sell that as entertainment?
Does it ever feel strange?
I endlessly find it fascinating: I go so deep sometimes, I practically feel traumatized by my character's life. And then when I come up, I see I've written entertainment for people. Heck, entertainment even for me, if I step back.
Just a thought.
You know, it's odd: I'm always so surprised and touched when people are kind to me. I rarely ask anyone for anything, like hardly ever, but there have been two recent instances, and I feel so grateful I have to share. Have you ever been really surprised someone was kind?
Anyway, I'm writing a ton, or pseudonym is, and I feel so calm and settled. I have decided I'm not writing for real name until she has the same feeling about a story. I just go crazy when I'm not writing, or when I'm writing but not feeling it.
But I desperately want to ask one site to match the other's royalty rates. Except I keep putting it off. But I really need to. I haven't a clue how. Have you ever asked for a raise? How'd it go? Did it make things weird?
This post is starting to sound like twenty questions, LOL.
I discovered I can make Watermelon Juice in the blender. YUM! I love watermelon.
