This has been me over the last few days. My brain has been on overdrive – I blame the editing I’ve been doing on my manuscript for Eternal Vigilance… “oh look, another plot hole – how should I fill it”, “sorry Colin, you’re gone *slash*”, “why did the MC cross the road?”
And to top it all a scenario appeared in that twilight between waking and sleeping that seems to have weedled its way out of my subconscious into Storyist. Normally characters approach me in the shower and I can get rid of them by reading the shampoo bottle labels (I put what in my hair?). But this time? Nope.
I blame the editing. I love the freedom of first draft writes…a bit of plotting, a bit of pantsing. A bit less of “omg if I that character raises an eyebrow one more time I’m going to shave it off” editing.
So I have given myself permission to do some writing and not edit every day.
Well, Ana pushed me into it…she’s going to be fun to write!
