Writing and the New Year

Ecstatic bliss! I’m in the groove. In the zone. The writing’s flowing. I’ve gotten 55 solid pages of the novel rewritten so far, with three more days to get more written. I’ve been getting about four or five a pages a day done. The rewrite is extensive enough that, so far, I haven’t used hardly any of the previous text, just the plot and characters. Hopefully I’ll be able to use more as I go along.

But I’m in that place that I can remain in that world pretty much all day. Even when I’m making supper or picking up the kids, I’m still cogitating on it, and when I sit down, the words immediately start to flow.

And it’s the last day of 2010, can you believe it?! Tomorrow, it will no longer be a space odyssey! It will be the beginning of a whole new odyssey ~ let’s hope it’s as great as it’s been so far. (And I’ll get back to longer more-thoughtful posts.)

The happiest of New Years, guys, and be safe!
