Look at the time!

Oh my gosh, look at the time! How can it be this late already? I've lost half the day...and I've been awake since 2 am. How did this happen? Um, you don't think I've stepped into some weird day-shifting, black hole time warp continuum thingy, do you? No, I didn't think so either but I just figured I should check with all of you. Because you know, you've obviously got a better grip on hours than I do.

This must've happened to you at some point or other, hasn't it? Please say it has. Please?

Phew. I'm so glad to hear it has.

Just a fast explanation...I've been working to finish a novel. In bits and pieces, really, but it's been coming along. Nicely, even. It just hasn't been, well...exactly the way I want it to be. Things are good, but not quite as good as I think they should be. The plot? Solid. Characters? Doing what they should be doing. But overall, I just haven't been thrilled.

Then, at 2 am, my eyes flew open. I stared at the ceiling for long moments, listening to my thudding heart. I had it. Really. I had it. The extra bit that would turn the story from all right to just right.

Been working on it all day. The hours? Just flying by. The story? Almost writing itself. The sun? Shining...outside and in. Yes, it's a very good Tuesday!

Hope your day is going well, too. And keep an eye on those hours, you hear? They have a habit of slipping by waaay too quickly. ;-)

Wow, I like that the story is flowing. That is most important to get that down on pages or desktop than stopping by in the morning.

Wow! That's wonderful. Congrats on all the writing.
