Work in Progress: Writing Sigyn, Post Six – The Right Shape

I haven’t blogged much lately, partly because I’ve been buried up to my neck in tutoring, but also, partly, for the best reason – because my WIP, my weird Norse-gods-as-teenagers story is finally, FINALLY, starting to go well.

My previous posts might have given you a little insight into just how difficult I’ve been finding this story. I know I need and want to write it, I just…haven’t known how. So it’s been sitting there, stagnating, and I’ve been staring at it and panicking and worrying that it’s just died on the page.

There was no magic moment that made the difference, no sudden flash of a lightbulb or ring of a bell. The story just started working again. The characters began to let me in. I still don’t understand why, but I’m definitely not complaining.

I’ve written more of Sigyn in the past week than I have in months, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down yet. Maybe I can finish this story after all.
