It's All About Being Happy = Writing!

Hello dear friends,

How are things going on out there? ;) I am pretty much in Cloud Nine. :)
Came home yesterday for the weekend, slept quite well after a long time.
Yes, I felt good this morning.

May be so much of it owes to the novel I am writing... 
The last time I wrote it was in December, just before the Christmas Holidays. And then I was interrupted by the drab I-don't-know-a-thing exams and it just got blocked. Yeah, right there! 

I was angry, irritated and kinda depressed and disappointed. And I was totally free as the book was under cover designing, not even assigned and what, I don't know what to do with free time, especially during study holidays for exams. 
I wouldn't write because I had loads to study and I wouldn't study because I wasn't able to write as I was blocked.

During that time, though I wrote one and a half dozens of poems. And it will be in the next book, if God wills. Speaking of which, I have named the book "The Room of Mirrors : Reflections in Words".
And the book will contain 110 poems, including the section breaks and writer's block poems and Prelude and Epilogue. It was planned before this book was out.

Back to Fiction Writing. 
So that's it - I am writing it again, and it is going smoothly and I was surprised to realize that it was just a matter of starting it - restarting it. 
Writing it.

The rest of the story would move on its own... The story has a life of its own, I feel, as I write it sitting in the Pathology Lecture class. 
I go to where Selena is, where Rene and Pris goes to school and where Noah tries his best to win Selena back... I live the characters as I write them - maybe that is exactly what every writer does. I feel drawn to the charm of writing itself as I write...
And Noah - it is a character I adore, a man I love and admire through all his human imperfections.
Dr. Noah Sehnor - a man as large as life working hard to find his life.
The story goes with a well-drawn plot which divides the book into 3 parts. I made the plot and outlines during Christmas Vacation.
And it makes the writing a lot easier. And I enjoy it as much as reading a contemporary romance novel.

Part One is the present and yes, it is almost finished. Just 3 more chapters there.
Part Two is a flashback that takes the reader 15 years back to a story of some medical students. The section narrates a story of 5 years. 
Part Three is the conclusion to the novel, which rectifies the conflicts in Part one reasonably.

Now all I have to do is Write It. Sounds simple, doesn't it? 
Hope I will make it in the long run! :D

To talk about contemporary romance fiction, I just finished Eileen Goudge's The Second Silence.
A good book, I loved the writing and story. I would give it 4 stars. One star taken off because, it's clear that it's fiction. The ending seemed a bit too incredulous. :)
But then, that's fiction!

I hope I don't write it as too implausible as that.
Now I have jumped to the next book - I have discovered that I write well when I read well - a Nora Roberts' book that contains two of her classic novels. The book is named 'The Laws of Love'. 
And I guess I forgot the name of the novel I am reading now. :-/ May be I'm just a bit distracted, but I shall tell you soon about it. It's something about being lawless. 

OH YES! Now Got it - Lawless is the title itself! :D
I love her language - a classic touch is what it has. And the story takes us to distant time in the past... The hot Arizona Terrain, the sun and the horses, smell of blood and dust, Apache and Indians... :) A Classic Romance. Will share a thing or two about it after I finish it. :)

Meanwhile, let me work on my novel. I haven't settled on a title for the book, but I have in mind something that came from my gut instinct - Between Love and Love. Though some said it isn't as strong as the story, I simply trust my gut. But let's see what comes out when it is finished! :) That's the right way - to give it its time.

I shall share a few excerpts from it the next post onwards.
Let me go have my lunch now, something's burning inside!

Hunger-contraction Type 2! :O


P.S. Facebook says I am 60% Happy today and where's the rest 40%?
The only thing I liked about that post is this picture they had in it. :P
The thing is, I feel very happy and in peace with myself today since morning.
So, what I am saying is : Don't trust any application there - it's just a game - some people might believe it and find themselves a bit too much like what they say.
"Don't let things rule you. Rule things that come to rule you. So that includes Mood changes and depression and disappointments and all kinds of negative emotions."
