WIP Day - I Dream of Sentences
Just a random sentence, with no real planning or thought behind it. I sat there, curled up in my blankets as hubby played with the boys out in the living room, and let the sentence simmer in my mind.
It was interesting. A different thought.
And before I knew it, an entire rough plot for a book had taken form. I didn't plan it. Never thought of writing this story before. All I had was a sentence that woke me up, and the rest was history.
I ran into the living room, snatched my netbook, and quickly typed out this new idea. Hubby just sat and stared at me, a mixed look of amusement and confusion on his face. People out there married or with a writer:
You do know you chose a crazy person, right?
Now then, I have no idea when I will get the chance to write this new story. My idea stack is huge, and seems to always be growing. I need more hours in the day, more energy in my body, less required sleep. But this story intrigues me too much to let it disappear. I want to write it. Maybe I will dare to write while editing ITB this next year. Maybe I will save it for the summer. Maybe it will simmer for another year, then burst into life. Either way, I will write it.
Because, you know, a story is no good if it is not shared.
I just wanted to share this with all of you. It is so crazy when muses decide to strike. And I love it every time. If you get struck by your muse, write it down. You never know...
Thank you SO much to those of you out there who have purchased a copy. I am learning just how much more popular Kindle is than paperback, let me tell you. I myself have a Kindle now and love it. But that doesn't change the fact that paperback is a million times better. I do love paper...
Right now I am trying to decide if I want to start fishing for reviews from blogs and readers. Such a daunting thought! I know I should. I really should. I will. Some time... soon. If you DO happen to read PN, and liked it, I wouldn't mind ratings and reviews at sites such as Amazon and Goodreads. Just saying... *clears throat, looks around, smiles...*
BTW... being a lefty makes for signing books very difficult. I sat there and twisted the book forever before I finally found a spot I could sign without totally creasing the spine. Lefties... sigh.
That's about it for me this week. I hope your week has gone amazing.
Do feel free to share!
