Good morning, blog world! What sparks your energy, creativity, and imagination on a Monday morning?
Today I was sparked by comments on my Creative Moments site where I talked about how I’d been slacking off a bit on my rewrites.
Encouraged, as always, by the wonderful and supportive remarks, I felt renewed. Reenergized. Is that even a word?
So as soon as I did some blog visiting for my Monday Memes post, I opened up my Defining Moments document and began again.
I left off last (with the rewrites) on page 64, Chapter Ten. After two hours of total concentration on the work, I ended up on Chapter Fifteen, page 117.
Which also begins Part II in the WIP, called Revelations. Part I is entitled Introductory Moments.
The MC, Jillian McAvoy, has just ended a bittersweet phase in her life. A love affair has gone wrong, but her book is out there on the shelves. She has improved her relationship with her daughter Megan. And across the street, her neighbor Ernestine is remembering the past and the secrets that have plagued her all these years.
What will happen next? Even though I have the first draft down, my rewriting can turn things around. Nothing is written in stone.
I like this part. As much as I have been procrastinating, when I do open the document and begin, I am excited and full of energy.
See what a few sparks can do? What sparks you on a Monday morning? What do you look forward to?
