Why does inspiration strike the way it does?
Princess Both at our school's annual Fall Festival, and voila! I had this amazing idea for how to work a requested revision into BNN...
And then when I made that change, naturally, I would have to return to an earlier scene (which page was that on?) to work in how the change would be foreshadowed.
Oh, yes, and then there's this later scene that won't make sense now if I don't make this note...
And oh my goodness! This change is so cool, it could actually become something of a "lesson" the MC learns by novel's end! Must make note to think about whether or not that will work...
Thirty minutes later I'm almost late for the princesses!
Not only that, we almost missed the entire festival. JRM is annoyed--will you ever get away from that laptop? Babies are cranky--Mommy! It's time to go!!!
I'm thinking of my NaNo bleeps today (link). I'm not participating because for me it's ReviseMo, but I would so be there otherwise. The idea of writing every day with goals and partners sounds so motivating.
And that silly muse. Am I the only one who gets inspiration at the darndest time? (Am I the only one who feels guilty for having her head in a cloud the entire time I'm working on a MS or a revision?)
Good luck, Nanners! Til Thursday~
