Why do I still want to be Moesha at 28 years old?
I’ve been writing a novel for the past two months that has taken over my life. It’s a love story about two people who meet in a place where you’d never expect love to blossom.
The hard part is my characters are going through something I’m currently going through. Usually my novels are my chance to escape. My characters are beautiful and smart, dealing with issues and situations I have no real world experience with.
But this story is hitting a little too close to home and it’s becoming difficult to write. Something happens to them and I feel it. My female character cries, it makes me want to cry. I had to take a few weeks off because it was getting too tough.
But I think it’s important. It’s pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me work a little bit harder.
I think this story could actually help people.
