For me, the joy of writing is in the journey rather than in the destination. Fortunately, since I write to inspiration and sometimes my writing muse goes into hibernation. Though, when he does that, my editing muse comes out to play.
I can write about the same characters for years without thinking about an actual ending!
I can pick up a story I haven’t written anything for in years and continue on like I never stopped.
I can have a 200-word half-assed idea in a notebook and then two years later suddenly write ten-thousand words more.
But… I generally just write when my characters speak….
These blog posts probably show the struggle.
