Late last night, as I was trying to go to sleep, ideas hit me for the novel. Rather than lay there dreaming of it, I opened my Notes app and wrote some of it down. It was a rewrite of a scene where the hero finds an ancient pool, and after writing it, I thought the scene was static. He lays by the pool, chilling. The prevailing thought is why isn’t he splashing about and having a great time, or at least getting out of the pool, then the phone rings. I’m trying to make anything I do that feels static, have a flow to it, and not be so standstill.
Other than that, I have an iced latte in hand, and I need this to wake me a little more. I feel good today, and I’d like for my creative endeavors to pop just a little brighter today. As y’all know, I fall off the creative wagon so much, I may need insurance (jk). I’m telling myself to smile a little more, be a lot nicer, and try to work on new things, and at least four pages for the novel. It can and will be done, if I take the time to get things done. Four pages is ambitious, but I want to aim for something other than minimal output.
Also its warm, nice outside, and I feel there are new ideas waiting to be written down. Also gonna hit my print journal up but good. Friday is a delight.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
