I started writing the second story in The Ladies of The Orb series. For some time I’ve had the names of the main characters and the outline for the story. It’s so much different when writing it because I’m making it come alive. The characters, the scenes, the emotions and conversations take on a life of their own.
One of the funniest thing that occurs for me when writing a story is, I dream about it. While sleeping I expand the story line, I think of ways to make the scenes more real and I work on the emotions that I want to get across to the reader. As soon as I get up in the morning I’m working out the places to add the new text!
Marla is a young girl that loves to read. She not only reads the books for her age group but her vocabulary is far advanced so she reads books several levels about her peers. At first I had dubbed the story “Marla & Marry” just to call it something but when I started writing it in earnest, the title came to me: The Curious Scholar.
Let me know what you think of the title.
