Writing up a storm

The new project is simply flying along. It may be all rubbish but I don't care; the words are flowing and I'm having tons of fun with it. I've done at least a thousand words a day since I started it. Incredible. If I keep this rate up I'll have it finished by mid-March! I won't of, course. Right now I'm in a bit of a lull, work-wise, so I have plenty of time to devote to it. Once eh new projects kick in I won't be able to play but until then I'm going to give it its head and let it run where it wants.

And the beat goes on

I wrote over 1200 words today! I'm amazed! The story is leaping on to the page. Can't explain it; I'm not even going to try. I hope I can keep it up.

I've shelved Project Tevan for the moment. I intend to finish it, but for now it has be off the stove. It will benefit from the new project and the new energy I've tapped into, I'm sure.

Wow! Where did this come from?

Soemthing very odd happened to me this morning. I was driving in to work which in itself is fairly odd -- I only go to the office very occassionally -- when a story that has been at the back of my mind for years now suddenly burst into life. The names: the characters: the plot. Even a tentative title. The whole shebang in fact; and even odder, I've just written a complete "line-for-scene" breakdown of the entire thing. I don't do that. It isn't my way of working. It isn't even my genre. And it only took me about 30 minutes to do it. Really!
Will it go anywhere? Don't know yet, but I'm excited to see. I've posted the 608 words of my "line-for-scene". With any luck I'll be posting lots more words. I hope you will be too.
