Doris is right. Writing does feel good. It's something that you have to do. You can't put it aside, or it looms over you. It's a constant learning process - one I know will never end. I think that's what makes it so exciting.
I've been planning out my WIP not only on the computer, but driving down the road, talking with my husband, or walking through the grocery isle. Ideas just pop up at the oddest times. I love to sit at the computer and immerse myself in the West, or crack open the myriad of books on the many subjects of the 19th century (my favorite time period). Characters, places, and events are constantly appearing up on new websites. I just can't get enough!
