Winter into Spring

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth

Writing is like this for me. I have a plot, some characters just the bones of the story. Just the bones are they good bones or not? Only when spring arrives or rather the writing of the book will I know if what is staring at me will blossom into a beautiful bit of prose. OR is it just a weedy tree?

    Oh, what a beautiful quote–from a painter, no less!!!

    On my current WIP, I am striving to do just as you say–get the bone structure right so everything else will only act as beautiful decor to enhance the novel.

    Would love those prayers!!!

    You got prayers! Diana

  3. I think I have to disagree with half the quote though. I love fall and I love snow, but I get so tired of the short days and cold weather.

    So true Sara. I don’t like winter at all, but it worked with the writing message. Give me long sunshine filled days and I’m much happier. 😉
