Most of you know I wrote the books Wars End and Stryker's move, and though they are doing well, I am emotionally vested in them to a point. Though I love the characters, I realize they are from an unrealistic reality. (Wow, did I just type that?) While I sit and write Fallon's Land, I believe I see growth in myself as a writer. The cast of characters are so real to me and I am completely vested in them. When sadness happens, I feel sadness envelop me. When tradgedy strikes, their tears are mine as well and when they triumph, I feel myself cheering them on! Of all three books, Fallon's Land reminds me of how Diane Keaton's character did in "Something's Got To Give" as she wrote the play and she sat there crying while she wrote it. It came from experience and all aspects of emotions! If this is what producing literature is all about, dang, I'm hooked!
