Day Thirty-Seven of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey


DAY 37: Piloting My Creativity

I don’t know about you, fellow writers, but certain stories just fit into a particular format. For instance, I wrote my YA fantasty/magic realism adventure as a novel because the language required an expansive canvas. However, most of my prior writing focused on stories fit for the big screen or theatrical setting.

While editing the novel, I realized that I started to focus too much on one of the featured characters. I cut her scenes severely, but left just enough to add texture and dimension.

I went back, upon completion of the novel, and revisited the featured character’s backstory. I found myself intrigued by her journey and the dialogue effortlessly flowed.

Sometime in the last few months I envisioned her back story, a prequel to the YA novel, as a dramatic TV series. It’s still in the early writing stages, but my passion for this project deepens with each line of dialogue.
