After spending about two thirds of the 27th mourning the loss of my drafts, I decided that the term my self-imposed exile from home was over.
I ran straight to the arms of my beloved characters and immersed myself in the world of my creation.
It was like a balm to my soul.
Sure, the loss hurt, but it could have been so much worse. I could have lost more than I did. As it is, I still have all of my Doorways edits, so that's what I'm going to do until I get over the worst of my pain at losing WiP2.
Now that I'm back with my first love, I almost can't believe how long I've stayed away from it. Even though I enjoy everything else that I write, I miss my characters from Doorways every moment that I'm not with them.
Sad, but true.
Anyway, I feel happier now. More at peace with what happened. Soon I will be able to look at my WiP2 rough draft without thinking of the huge space that looms after it. Then I will be able to start again, excited to know that I will be improving on what I have written.
But right now, Doorways is exactly what I need.
Do you have a story and/or characters that you love more than any others?
Thank you all very much for your sympathy and support! That's what made me able to get back to Doorways so soon.
