Last night was a strange writing night. I could not get going…there was simply nothing that was motivating me. I tried music, I tried sitting quietly with my eyes closed and meditating, I tried whiskey. Nothing worked. And then…BAM. Right around 1:00am, I am just heading off to bed. An idea strikes me…not a new idea, but rather an idea of where I can take the story; a couple possible endings and a bit more content. So, I wrote a bit yet at that time of day. Crazy but true. But then today, I started having some doubts. Not about the story, but about the format. It is going to be a he said / she said type story, where both of the main characters talk about the same events, but from their own perspectives. It is kind of a neat conversation so far. Oh, and before you ask…I am still working on Lionel Aber’s story. So, I really have two ideas on the go. And of course, there is always the stuff that will never see the light of day because it’s trash. And all I can say is this: I’m writing again. And it’s fun again.
