The toll of writing

As I mentioned last blog post, I've completed the first draft of Tangled Up In You. While there were definitely some heavy emotional scenes in Playing At Love, I'm feeling the toll of writing Tangled more. 

The journey characters Gavin and Sophie take in this novel has really affected me, which may sound weird since I wrote it! But, I am the type of writer that really enjoys those times when the characters seem to reveal themselves without my "interference" so to speak. 

I can only hope that those moments that weighed heavily on me translate to other readers.
