I said a few weeks ago that I’d put my book on the back burner while I worked through some classes. I’m still working on them. Then about two weeks ago I guess, I was driving a long when a “scene” went through my head. It was a good scene. It intrigued me. I went home and wrote it all down to file it away for future use. Here’s the thing. This scene involves two characters. At this point I do not know anything about them, but they haunt me. I can’t seem to stop thinking about them. I try to figure out who they are, what they are in the middle of, but every scenario I imagine doesn’t seem right. Nothing fits. I’ve imagined them being star crossed lovers. Nope. I imagined they had a chance meeting on a train and somehow ended up witnessing something that changed their lives. Nah. At some point I even imagined that he was a ghost. I don’t think so. From an alternate universe? Ridiculous. No plot I begin to imagine fits these two. They are defying every thought I have about who they are. I would like to throw the scene in a drawer and forget all about them. I just want to stop thinking about them because I am getting annoyed at the lack of clarity I have about them. But. They. Won’t. Go. Away.
Something tells me that these two are going to be very important to me at some point. I just wish I knew how. It bothers me that I can’t figure out what I’m supposed to do with them. I am not a very patient person I guess. I also seriously need to work on my time management so I can finish these classes, read books, have time to write AND sleep..all the while keeping up with the housekeeping and parenting thing. Funny.
