Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.

Back in the Saddle

If you've been reading along, you know I've been deep in the editing thing for a while now. Not only that, but editing a book I thought I'd finished a couple years ago. Blink has sat quietly waiting for the feedback from my CP and betas. AWJ was in limbo waiting for the books ahead of it to be finished.

Tonight, AWJ could no longer stand the wait. It started beating on the door to be let out. So, I did what I was told and let it out. A glimmer of a sliver of an idea formed, and before I knew it, I had written a whole new beginning for the book. Right now it's only 700 and some words. It's almost all dialogue, and it needs fleshing out, but I think I hit a good opener. And thus ends the drought of new words. Sure they're new words on an old piece, but that's better than nothing.

Onward to glory, my friend!

Very cool!! Sometimes those perfect beginnings take a while to brew, but when they do it's magic.
