On writing

Back in college, lo these many year ago, I used to write all the time. I wrote stories for D&D games, I wrote stories for classes, I wrote stories in my head about the background and motivations for characters I was portraying in acting classes.

It's been years since I've written with any sort of regularity. There was a lot of life-stuff that sort of got in the way of my creativity, and I just couldn't put myself into stories like I had in the past.

Last week, a very good friend of mine published her first novel. I'm reading it now, and I think it's bloody brilliant. I know she worked long and hard on perfecting her writing, and it shows.

This got me thinking: I miss writing. I miss making up stories, fleshing them out, and giving them a life of their own.

I don't know that I'll ever be good or dedicated enough to become a Real Author, but I do want to start writing again. Maybe I'll put whatever I come up with here. I've already been bitten by an Art of Wishing plot bunny, so maybe you should watch this space for future fanfiction. ;)

On a related note, I was thinking about audiobooks, and I couldn't decide if I would want to record an audiobook for a novel I had written. On the one hand, I would love to actually give characters I had created literal voice, on the other hand, I sound like an eight year old.
