I have had a brain surge yesterday and today. It felt good. It cost me most of a nights sleep, but it felt good. Still feels good. A welcome relief from the past month or so when I have had a collective word count of probably under 10K.
I didn't write much today, it was all notes, but it was words and a better part of a much longer story in now in outline form on my computer. I am ready to roll. I haven't decided if I am going to go back on my original NaNo story and use this one instead or start this one and then go into my NaNo idea. Either way, it feels good to have the brain working again. I think it was the large quantity of chocolate I inhaled yesterday at lunch.
I also managed to pound out 1500 words of a story I don't know how to finish (or if I ever will). I really like where I have taken it so far, with a very hardboiled feel to it, but I dont' know if I should continue it as a crime story (the way I originally intended) or take it into the realm of horror (which I could very well do the way I have set it up). Either way I need an appropriate monster, be it man or beast.
Oh, this feels good. I just hope it doesn't disturb my sleep for many more nights. Although if it propels my brain like it did last night I'll take it.
