One night last week as I sat on my couch watching an old YouTube video, REO Speedwagon’s “I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore,” and my neglected characters, Rachel and Noah, demanded that I write their story. I haven’t written in any of my manuscripts in several months, yet I opened my YA time travel manuscript and re-wrote some of the most important scenes.
I enjoyed reading their story and stayed up late for two nights writing new scenes and editing some mistakes that I found while listening to some of my favorite songs. As I immersed myself back into their world, the realization hit me like a ton of bricks: I miss writing their story! I can balance my love (and maybe need) for writing with my practical side of working on my real estate business.
Here is the video that inspired my writing. Enjoy!
