Writing: Genius or Insanity?

I, on occasion, get so frustrated with my characters that I write letters to them.  (Doesn’t everyone?) I thought I’d share a few of them.

Two wolves playing near forestJust a few I scribbled while writing Ivy:


 

Dear Ivy,

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

*headdesk*

Me


Dear Gareth,

Please stop yelling in my head.

I’m giving you a chapter with Ivy all to yourself and you even get to be a git to Steve. So shut the hell up so I can finish work.

Git.

Love,

Me


Dear Steve,

I don’t care if you are a wolf right now.

Sneezing at someone is never an appropriate way to end an argument.

Love,

Me


Dear Steve,

Please SHUT up for like two hours so I can finish a chapter for Darby.

Please. I realize that I am an evil writer who took your Ivy from you, but seriously.  Stop growling at me.

You are a fictional character.

Love

Me


Dear Gareth,

You can’t eat the bad guy until Steve questions him.

Stop growling.

Love,

Me


 

Dear Ivy,

Please remember that this was your idea.

Love,

Me
