Where do I begin?
Somewhere between these characters that talk to her, the ones that she expects me to know who they are like we hung out with them last weekend or something.
To when I find her crying on the couch, listening to classical music with the computer placed on her lap like someone just died, because of said characters.
To the times I catch her talking to these characters in the shower like they are in there washing her back.
As I guess creativity is a beautiful thing, it is also a rather freighting thing as well. Especially when you are married to it.
I’ve heard that authors draw from their lives and use creativity to fill in the blanks. M definitely does that to the point that family and friends joke they have to be careful what they do, or say or they will live famously through her writings. As for myself, I’m pretty sure every smartass, controlling, possessive, domineering, alpha male shit, as she calls it, or just being an asshole in general thing I have ever done has probably been depicted somehow by one of her glorious Casanovas.
No complaints here.
The absolute worst part of the writing process, at least for M, and what I deal with is she is a huge procrastinator. It drives me fucking crazy. She will actually write “The End” and upload the book within 10 min. That does not even highlight the emotional stress brought on by this procrastination, but I will give her praise where praise is due. She gets them done. Done right and on time, some fucking how. Don’t think though I will ever let up on her. I like to credit myself for being the one that kicks her in her pretty little ass to get things done, for without me she’d be lost. But I won’t lie I would be lost without her as well.
My beautiful tiny wife the writer: Damn she is a pain in the ass. That being said she is also a very talented, creative, and persistent writer. I am proud of M’s success and her passion for what she does. She devotes her life to these characters she so beautifully portrays in her writings, and if she has to talk to invisible people and shed a few tears every once and while, so be it.
My wife rocks as writer and she is damn fucking sexy doing it!
