In Denial

I miss working on Star & Philip’s story.  It’s not that I don’t know where to go with it, but that I don’t want to go there. 

My best friend said it best, “Chapter 4 should probably be Chapter 8”.

She’s right of course. But, I really don’t want to write Chapters 4 thru 7. My babies are growing up too fast! Literally. Chapter 1 starts with the account of Star’s birth. I know kids have to go through this thing called puberty and coming of age, but I don’t want to see it happened. I want Star to remain my little girl. I rather remember her as a child, go away for a few years, and come back to her as an adult so I can say, “Wow! Look how much you’ve grown!”

I don’t want to see her and Philip struggle to find their place in the world, uncover heartbreaking secrets, make those unavoidable mistakes & hurt each other in the process. I rather just see them standing at the end of it all: strong and in love. (Okay, the second part is my wishful thinking)

Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a novel if I don’t tell what they went through. I guess I have to find the courage to  let my children grown up.
