The ramblings of a lonely mind
Driving home from work last night, my brain started writing without me.
He felt her, the sensation whirling around him, mixing with the cold air off the lake. The mist was heavy, almost fairytale like in the way it hung just above the water and created a mysterious tone to this already incredible night.
*eye roll* what is That? Okay, I'll admit it. I like setting a scene. I'm a background painter. I like those fog machines and setting the lights just right. I want to orchestrate the sound of waves and song of crickets, or perhaps the noise of distant highway that somehow makes a person walking along a shore all the more lonely. Either way, I have way too much fun creating things like that up there, without having any purpose, scope or feeling for who this man is and who he thinks is there. (And I'm not gonna investigate because any man who's that into the fairytale mist is NOT someone I wanna write about!)
However, now that I wrote that, I'm itching to write REAL stuff. Ya know--the non-fluffy but still descriptive stuff that survives the edits and paints the scene in a more realistic way.
Of course, writing that I go. hmmm, what about guy-lit? Would anyone read a story from the guys pov, but still make it a romance/chick lit type? *groan*
I'm gonna go now. Clearly the ramblings of my lonely mind are getting to me. (And I really should be working since I'm actually on the clock!)
