Ah Inspiration!

Well, it's been a very busy couple of weeks, and by the time I got to Sunday night (which of course was also Halloween AND my wedding anniversary), I couldn't face an all-night NaNoWriMo kick-off.  In fact, I hadn't the foggiest idea what I would write about anyway, and decided a good night's sleep would be best all round.

And then the magic happened.  I had one those dreams.  You know, the kind with a plot that almost makes sense, and unexpected characters, and life-and-death on the line, and vivid sensations and emotions.  The kind you can't stop thinking about because you've tapped a vein that runs to depths you forgot you had.

And voila!  Like a gift from heaven, I have something to write about.  Here's hoping I still love it in 28 days.

How's it coming with everyone else?

Oh by the way, if you are in the U.S., please go VOTE!!!!!!


  1. That's so utterly brilliant! I never have dreams that make enough sense to write a story about.

    They're either too boring: standing and looking soulfully at the ocean; or too barmy: riding an emu up the side of a building and across the telegraph wires. And nothing ever emerges that could be a plot.

    Good luck with the nanoing! (I'm over there as fairyhedgehog.)

  2. OMG that's so funny! I'm totally picturing a hedgehog riding an emu across a city!
