In the wee hours of the morning (3AM) on Saturday November 28th I woke up from a dream where Dolly Parton said she believed in me and if that’s not a sign then I don’t know what is.
Let me explain, this is the woman who wrote over Three THOUSAND songs! If that isn’t a sign from the writing gods to get my butt back into gear then I don’t know what is! So I turned on the light, much to Gipsy’s dismay, and got dressed in real clothes and put on makeup and brushed my hair and I got to WORK!
And by work I mean walking Gipsy, going to meijers, hanging out with friends who were also awake freakishly early on a saturday and drafting this post.
But THEN I got to work! With Dolly Parton’s visage still fresh in my mind and Adderall and caffeine coursing through my veins I opened the long neglected word document that held The Sword and Shield‘s sequel and got to work!
Well…that’s what I’d like to say happened but this isn’t a Hallmark Channel Movie and life doesn’t just magically give things like inspiration to you in the dead of night. It takes work and work is exactly what I did. I put together a new outline that covered all the important points I wanted Ezra to experience and discovered new ways that I could delve deeper into who he is as a character.
I’m very excited about this new path I’m embarking on in my journey to be the best possible author!
Bye for now!
