Oh, the humidity! Three thunderstorms in three days, and finally the air is breathable.

1000 words on the Sela story yesterday, and 1000 more today. I think I've got enough of a grip on the story and character now that I might take a step back and do some loose outlining tomorrow.

More and more I'm coming to see, it's never so much about what you say as how you say it.

To talk or not to talk

I have a question for all you creative types. I find when I'm working on a story, until I have at least one finished draft, I'm not comfortable discussing the details of the story or characters or concept. Somehow it feels as thought I'll lose the vitality of the project if I let any of it escape my head. But I know other people thrive on discussion and frequently hash ideas out with their creative friends. So, I'm wondering...

Do you usually talk about your creative projects while they're on the go?

Comment if you've more to say. :)
