Writing a story
but I don’t know where it's going
the plot is full of gaping holes
the pacing is too slow
and worst of all it's really boring
there are just too many words
and the characters seem to be beyond my control
like they have lives of their own
I wonder if they continue to live on the pages
when we close our books.
Do they ever hate their creator
for putting them through so much torment?
Do they resent the reader
for enjoying their suffering?
