Finished Chapter Two of the new novel this morning. Tried working on it Friday night but things weren’t flowing correctly with the characters. So I went to bed, woke up the next morning and found those few characters waiting for me. The chapter flowed out, the dialogue crisper than I would have hoped. A couple of characters got scraped, only receiving mentions, but those two girls will get fully introduced soon. Can’t force these things.
What did I learn from this experience? Go to sleep! Hah. Sometimes a good night’s rest can really create clarity. Just don’t tell my wife about this epiphany, she’s been pushing me to go to bed earlier… says it’s good for me. I don’t want her start glutting and being more persistent about the sleep issue.
