Since my last post, I re-read one of the fragmented beginnings of an idea and fell in like with it. I wondered why I ever stopped working on it. And then the characters began speaking to me! Hurray!
I haven’t had a ton of time to work on it, just here and there scratching out what I could in my notebook. But it feels great. Really great. I don’t think this is going to be a fantastic story by any means, but the fact that I can actually put my pen to paper and the words flow out without effort- well, I can’t even describe how it feels. Fantabulous isn’t good enough.
I’ve gone from 4,133 words to 5962 in five days. That’s the most I’ve written in that small span of time in months. I realize it’s not a huge amount in the grand scheme of things (I hate the grand scheme of things, anyways) but it’s huge for me right now.
I’m super stoked!
A little thing that makes me happy: buying myself something I really shouldn’t spend money on 🙂
