SHE HEARS VOICES...

This past weekend as I was doing a reading, I heard my friend say,
"Where in the world does she come up with all these scenarios, I guess God has gifted her with words and she says them." I paraphrased a bit but that was the gist of it. She also said,
"When I read this I am astonished because I have known you forever and..." I was touched and pleased because I want to have folks who read my books ask those kind of questions and I have to say this;
I HEAR VOICES,
Don't get spooked out, it is really simple, the characters that I write about talk to me,
And I listen and respond by writing,
Sometimes there are so many of them up there jockeying for position,
I have to tell them the wait their turn,
At the book reading, many in the audience offered who they would love to tell their own story,
SCHAE was introduced in my first book,
Many want Alexandra Wilson's story told,
And some are dying to know more about Cinnamon's Aunts,
And of course Cinnamon's daughter, Aura's story is begging to be written,
Not to mention, Ava Green...
They are all talking up a storm, and I am listening and grateful,
That the voices are providing me with so much book food,
I will have filled plates on the table for years to come...
I love what I am doing,
And am so grateful that I have been blessed to have actual people,
Who want to read what I write, listen to the voices on paper and respond,
Positively,

SO BLESSED!

Angelia, only another writer understands when someone says I "hear voices." I used to wonder how Stephen King could write the things he writes...when I got to be a writer and could hear my characters talking, that made me understand more. I still wouldn't spend a night at his house if asked, but I understand...lol
And to those who are not writers--no we are not crazy...but in order to bring a good story to you, writers have to let the characters lead the way and tell their story.

That is it Sister Shelia,

Blessings,

I hear voices too. And I also dream about my stories and characters. Stuff comes to me in dreams and daydreams all the time. So, when I'm daydreaming, I'm really working! LOL.

Lady G,
I feel you. I have always been a daydreamer and didnt even know I was preparing to be a writer...

Smooches!

I so understand about the characters speaking to you. Mine speak to me. Sometimes they wake me up and drive me crazy until I write down what they are telling me.

I hope I get the chance to read about all the characters in your head vying for center stage.
