Pay Attention to Those Instincts

What a great writing day.  My word count didn’t go up a lot and in fact, I haven’t tallied it yet.  I plan to hit the laptop again later.

No, what I did do was go back with my main character’s new and improved personality and rework some scenes.  I was right.  Fighting that urge was bad.  Giving in to it was good.

And, as I thought, it opened up the rest of the story.  I know of two scenes I’ll have to cut but I instinctively knew they weren’t working anyway.  However, I have replacements in mind and I also know how to flesh out another that was just a bit off–one of those scenes that FELT like it could be more.  Make sense?  

I wish I could stay in this office and continue working on this while it burns so brightly in my mind.  But, the youngest needs help studying  and he could use a little extra “mom” time this afternoon.  So could my daughter who has the cold that won’t leave this house.   Plus, I need a break from the office.  Have a noisy bird right outside the window–one that didn’t scare when I yanked up the heavy and loud wooden blinds in here…

    You’re right. Those instincts are merely your subconscious telling you something is off. Glad you went with them. I’m so looking forward to reading this book!

    Have a great day!
