cascade of ideas

This morning, like every morning, I woke up and thought about my writing. Maybe I won’t write today, I thought. Maybe I need time for ideas to perk. Then I thought, no, I want to write. Even if it’s another day of useless words, they’re not useless to me. They might be useless in the WIP, but they take me where I need to go. I want to put down my words today. At least three pages.

After the pep talk, I got out of bed and made a cup of tea which I took with me into my writing room. I opened my notebook, curious to see what would happen. Almost immediately an idea occurred to me and then another and another and by the time I’d finished, I had six pages and a clear path to how the second act will play out. I’m really glad I didn’t talk myself out of writing today!
