all about me

Today I'm going to start a new project. It's a new novel, because I have two WIP that are currently being critqued by other writers.

Fun fact about me:
When I don't write, I get grumpy. I get cranky. I'm awful to live with.

So with the summer looming ahead of me and while I'm waiting for feedback, I'm going to start a new novel.

Last night on my car ride home, the entire story, characters, conflict and setting has come to me so quickly.

We'll see how quickly I can get the crappy first draft done.

I'll keep you updated.

My question to you, how often do you get flashes of inspiration? How often do you act one them?


  1. Dude, I keep an inventory. I actually just blogged the serious inventory of stuff I'm heavily considering on my writing blog (cidwrites.com). I would say that I get an idea that gives me reason to pause and heavily consider writing or take some time to brainstorm or outline a bit on.

  2. I get them all the time...but they're usually in the shower in the morning. I need to keep a dry erase board just outside the curtain so I can write stuff down. By the time I'm dressed, I've forgotten most of it.

    By the way, I love the plot and the characters and the idea. I meant to tell you that yesterday, but things got hectic. Let me know what I can do to help! :)

  3. LoL - I keep a notebook in the bathroom area for exactly that reason.
