I’m back from the land of Wii, LEGOs, and Thomas the Tank Engine. I sprung my cat from the vet this morning. And now I’m sitting down to work or write or surf the Internet or something.
I had two minor writing epiphanies on the long drive home yesterday. Maybe they were more thoughts than epiphanies, but sometimes I like those long drives for time to think. DP and the dog slept beside me in the car and I realized that I was going to ease up a bit on my editorial work in January so as to up the writing. Up the ante yet again.
I figured out what the tension in the beginning is going to be for my schlock novel. Unfortunately I have no time to work on it, but I wrote it in the MS anyway for when I win the lottery and do nothing but write. And I realized how to work in one of the things that had been bugging me in my manuscript. I still haven’t quite figured out the time line in the beginning, but that’s OK.
What did you learn over the Christmas madness?
