On Ideas

30 Apr

I’ve been working on a character sketch for about a week now. I know her name, age, home, likes, dislikes, pretty much everything about her. I’ve also been working on a story to put her in, but nothing seemed to be just right. Then just before midnight as I was drifting off to sleep, this happened…

I turned on the light, grabbed my laptop and started writing furiously. Luckily for me, my husband can sleep through my late night frenzies so I didn’t even have to leave my bed. As I read my first draft this morning, I realize that it’s not too bad. There’s a lot of work to do to get it right, but I’m on the right track. And now that I know where I’m going, the journey is going to be so much easier. Maybe I should just lie down for a little while.
