Writing a book feels a lot like reading a book. I don’t know if everyone has the same process (and probably not), but I keep getting surprised by the way the story flows, the character progression, etc., just like I would if I were reading a book.
Writing a book is the perfect way to live in a world that you, yourself, are allowed to create. There are no rules in that world and you’re free to be whoever you want to be and control the narrative however it fits you best. Where in life are you able to do such a thing?
I don’t have many high expectations for how such book would turn out, and it’s going at the slowest pace possible, but just the fact that from time to time I can sit down and transfer my feelings into a whole new story no one else has read, is pretty exciting.
Have you tried writing a book before? What’s your process like?
