I've confessed to my brain only working at full function right before I go to sleep. It's that narrowing and focusing of thoughts that will drive me batty if I don't write these thoughts down.
And I had another doozy last night.
My weakness, as a writer, is to let the characters take over and write their story. I am NOT so good at description. I know that Alison Kent is just the opposite. THAT cracks me up. With her brain and mine, we could take over the world. (Just kidding, Danica. I'll be YOUR sidekick when you take no prisoners. Me=Pinky)
But then I had this wonderful thought about description last night in my FG book. It's the first in the four book set. And all of a sudden, I had description. From the prologue to where I stopped. It actually took my breath away.
I sometimes struggle with writing a book over 60,000. That's because I have all meat and no side dishes at the table. And now I'm beginning to realize exactly how to accomplish that. And it's the simple things. And this time, my friends, I think it's clicked.
On the exercise front...Billy Blanks and I officially tolerate each other now. *grins* I haven't missed a workout yet. And though there is still cursing, it's more infrequent. One day at a time.
