writing 7 March 2014


Yes, it’s still working; I’m writing at least a page every day. My characters, Jess and Sam, are struggling to figure out what their relationship is. Jess, in particular, keeps letting the message she got from her father that she is not worthy, get in the way. Sam has not been able to figure out how to break down the strong wall she’s built to protect herself from hurt. She cannot see past her wall even when his love for her is as clear and bright as the rising sun. I really want her to find her way through this, but the wall is thick and well-constructed. I’m hopeful that the openness of land around them will teach her to let go and see that even in the midst of drought and storm, little clumps of grama grass find a way to survive and to thrive.
