Fiction with Kay

I read. I write. You enjoy!

Hello, hello, hello!

How are y’all doing on this fine Monday morning? I hope everyone’s fine, because this writer (and Momma) is STRUGGLING! 😑

So, I’ve had a long weekend, as I had to prepare for my son’s birthday (My little Nugget is 2!) And the odds were NOT in my favor. So, I haven’t been able to finish much writing. HOWEVER, I have had some time to plan this new series “Random Rants”, where I get to whine to you guys about my struggle as a writer!

Now, let’s dive in!

Of course, stories require a variety of diverse characters, and although I’m kinda proud of my MC, I’m not too happy with her sister. I’ve written her with the “older, smarter, prettier sister” personality, and I thought she’d be a great supporting character, but… I hate her.

I know we’re not supposed to like all our characters, but this one gets on my nerves. Not only because of her character, but because I loved the idea of her, but now that I’m filling in my plot, I feel like I don’t need her. So, now I’m just debating on whether I should keep her, get rid of her, or kill her off?

Gosh, that was cold.

Do you guys go through this? Let me know in the comments!

On another note, I’ve been engaging with the #WritingCommunity a LOT, I’ve seen a few writers admitting that they feel like they’re not working hard enough because they don’t meet their word count, and really, that’s not true at all. Whether you write 2,000 words or just one single sentence, you are getting somewhere, and you all need to be proud of yourselves.

Writing is HARD. It takes a tremendous amount of mental energy, and it’s not good or healthy to be so hard on yourselves. I’m proud of you, so you should be proud!

Finally, I will be writing another book review (excuse me while I groan) so keep your eyes open for that one!

Remember that you can follow me on Twitter @KaylaMclaney, and I’ll follow you right back so we can grow together!

Did you enjoy this #RandomRant? Do you have a character that you so despise? Feel free to rant with me in the comments!

I hope you guys have a happy Monday! May the Coffee be with You, and Remember to Keep Reading!
