(Ha ha… my title just makes me picture the opening to an episode of Supernatural…)
Well, hello, all… It’s me… I’ve been gone for far too long… my energy is returning — it was all I could do (out of curiosity, I googled this idiom) to keep my eyes open, being pregnant while caring for a 3-year old — and, with it, my creativity and inspiration… so, my writing has FINALLY resumed!
Yay! I even made my husband smile in the car the other day on the way to dinner… I was sitting quietly, listening to the playlist he had made me (music helps, don’t ya’ know) and thinking about my work-in-progress, when an idea occurred to me and I had to write it down. I grabbed the notebook/journal out of my purse but couldn’t find a pen, so I fumbled (quite frantically, in fact) around in the console area between the seats, dropping his iPods (yes, he has two — he loves music). When he asked me what I needed, I just said, “Pen,” (because I was afraid if I said more, I’d lose my train of thought) and finally held up the pen that was supposed to be in my purse to begin with. As I began writing, my husband said it was like watching a painter get inspired… 🙂 He was happy for me. And the whole thing felt great.
In related news, I have finally managed to write the final scene for CREEPING SLOWLY & EVAPORATING. Yay! I now have a complete first draft!
Now, I just need to keep it up. And that is the plan… I also hope to keep the blog a little more up-to-date. We’ll see how that goes.
Until next time…
