I was out of town the last couple of days, visiting an old friend. I had time to finish laying out the plot for the current WIP.
This is how it happened: I woke up at four in the morning with ideas going through my head. It drives AJ nuts, because he can’t do it. He has to talk it out.
Any time I need plot help, I drift on that point between sleep and awake, my mind opens, and wonderful ideas occur to me. The trick is to remember them when I finally get up. I keep paper and a pen beside the bed, but I don’t want to reach for them, not while thoughts are bouncing around in my mind.
This time, I remembered. Woke up again around six, jumped out of bed, booted up the laptop, and started writing it all down. I remembered it all. That was satisfying.
It hit 91 today. I love the heat!
