Where I am in the writing process: I don't know. Where I think I am: Totally confused. I've never really finished anything and it the past week I haven't really written anything either. I'm taking a bit of a break. (Not just from writing but sort of from blogging too... I haven't been on here as much but don't worry I'm not going anywhere.)
My current problems: I haven't written anything in over a week and even though I'm feeling guilty about not sticking with my own 50,000/50 days challenge--I'm okay with that. I've burnt myself out and now need a break. But do breaks lead to break ups? In relationships yes...in writing? NO. I've taken 2 major breaks before. I actually stopped writing this time last year and that time lasted a whole month. Eventually the urge to write always comes back. And I am planning on running another 50,000/50 day challenge this summer and actually sticking with it (which will be much easier since I don't summers). So I sort of answered my own question there but I have something else I've been wondering about for a while...
My question this week: Character descriptions. How do you describe a characters appearance? And how do you work it into a story without making it sound fake? How much is too much? Why can't I just say "she had blue eyes blond hair" the end? And where do you work it into a story? When your MC (main character) first meets said character? And where do you work this in for your MC? And do you even need to work this in for your MC?
