Time to Get Serious

After several years of filing ideas away in my brain, I have finally decided to get them down on paper. My story ideas tend to come in scenes. I have a 45 minute commute to and from work and I generally use that time to think about what my characters are up to. I currently have a historical fiction, a motivational and cozy murder mystery in my Works in Progress file. I find it is easy to concentrate on the murder mystery characters during my commute. I actually have conversations using their point of view. I hope other drivers just think I am singing with the radio! My dilemma this week, is trying to get those characters to come alive on paper. To solve this issue, I am currently taking a workshop and reading 4 different books on writing characters. I really think I am spending more time try to learn than actually writing. This week's goal is to work out a reading and writing schedule. If I get the scenes down maybe I can add the details later. I am also trying two software programs and will have reviews soon.
