Do I have some great news for this bright and early Wednesday morning!
Last night, I felt productive again for the first time in weeks! The muse struck. I’ve been fighting her for a while now on a particular story idea that kept popping into my head. It’s an idea I’ve had for months. I jotted it down like people suggested. It went away for a while. But it kept popping back up. Last night was the final straw. I opened my edits, ready to work on chapter 7, eager to get them done because I’m so close! 2 more chapters after this one! That’s it!!! But my mind was elsewhere. I could hardly focus. Instead, while at the RD chatroom, I started plotting the little idea my mind kept whispering to me.
By the afternoon, I had the opening scene in mind. What else could I do? I had to write it. Turns out, by midnight, I had half of my first chapter done. My editor ended up contacting me and I also did about 5 pages of edits. Then I went on to finish the chapter on the other story. So all in all, last night, I cranked out over 2k, did 1/3 of my edits and passed out at about 2:30am.
Meanwhile, I gotta go to work today regardless of my delusional exhaustion. But it’s only a few hours. Once I get back I’ll either continue on my edits or pass out on the couch. 😉
Happy Hump Day you guys!
