Whew! I was afraid it was going to be a no-words-accomplished week, but I managed to get an excellent scene mostly worked through this morning.
I’ve had a maddening week of dental work, appliances breaking down, the children and their dramas interrupting everything, and planning for upcoming back-to-school, birthdays, and holidays. I thought about characters and plot at quiet moments, but last night I was despairing I would get any actual words written. Then, this morning, a scene came to life when I tweaked my MC’s attitude. Now she seems more real to me than before!
It was only about 500 words, but what an impact they made. To the story and to me.
The Muse is incomprehensible and marvelous. (Two lines from The Princess Bride just popped into my brain. “It’s inconceivable!” “I do not think it means what you think it means.” Thanks, Muse…I think.)
