For the love of all Avalon.

I'm still stuck in the story I've been writing about my twins characters. It's been about three months now, I believe. It certainly does not qualify as a "short" story by stretch of the imagination. I don't mind that, really. It's been enjoyable to write and I'm having fun. Which is the point of writing, as far as I'm concerned.

That right there might be my problem, actually. The point of writing is to have fun. Not necessarily to tell a story...which is supposed to be the point of writing. I'm telling a story. It has a plot, if not particularly a point in and of itself. ::laughter::

Anyway. I have gotten beyond the bulk of the story itself. I'm working on an epilogue because, honestly, the ending of the story is pretty depressing. I had forgotten about just how sad the twins are, as characters, as people, as denizens of the fae. Everything about them is actually just a tad mournful. It's kind of painful to write. I love the twins, I had just forgotten how tortured they were. Mostly because I have never before really concentrated on them for such a long period of time. The longer I do, the more I learn about them. And so much that I thought I knew about them has changed after this new re-examination. Their nearest and dearest are still leagues away from them. Even the characters that know them best know so little about them, there is so much mystery that surrounds them. They'd be the gossip of all Avalon all the time if they were more visible.

Anyway. I'm pleased that I've gotten to the point where I'm in the epilogue of the story. As much as I have enjoyed the writing of this particular bit, I can not wait to be done with it.
