When I made my annual trek to visit my psychic earlier in the month, one of the things she told me was that I get a lot of my ideas when I am in or near water. Apparently she is on to my waterlogged notebooks... Either way, she was right, as she is about most things, and this morning proved no different. As I'm washing my hair I had an epiphany. You see, on Friday when Maxx and I were brainstorming on Book 2, I kept running into a bit of a glitch on why or how I was going to make something happen that needed to. Then, as I'm adding the conditioner it hits me in a rush, as if the water pressure knocked something loose in my brain and the realization came flooding out.
So while Book 1 is toddling along at a bit of a slower pace at the moment, the ideas for Book 2 seem to be alive and well, bouncing about my gray matter like Mexican jumping beans.
As for D&B, today was a much better day. The scene veered off in a way I hadn't expected but was much needed. I've also officially gone beyond my 400 page count but I'll deal with that later. For now I just want to get the story down.
So where are you when your ideas hit?
