And Sometimes It Works

To be awoken by words; an almost complete story line fluttering around in your brain, tapping you on the shoulder, urging you to wake up and write it down.

There’s nothing like it.

Yesterday I took a day off of writing. I’ve been working ten-twelve hour days for almost two weeks and started to feel stale. So I played hooky from myself.

I ate too much. I drank too much. (Juice, I mean juice!) And just when I thought I reached my peak of laziness, I woke up at 4:00 a.m. with a new, virtually finished story in my head.

It’s amazing what your brain can assimilate when given a rest.
