I just spent the entire night researching one niggling little plot point. I only wrote about 1000 words because I simply couldn’t go on without deciding this one thing..
I was SO frustrated, and SO pissed off. And then it clicked. And BOOM! All these little hanging bits of the story line started connecting almost like magnets, and making sense through this one detail. Not only that, but it adds depth to the story and gives me a focus for book #2, which is always formulating in the back of my mind.
Was my writing day satisfying? No. Am I so creatively turned on that I can’t sleep? Yes.
I love it when my story surprises me like this. 🙂
