What I was doing was…

Intending to finish a chapter of the novel and get onto the next chapter today. And, after writing 2,500 words about a scenario featuring supporting characters who I never even knew existed until today, I did! Hit a sweet spot just riffing on an idea, enabled by having already defined the plot purpose of the chapter and, based on the character development stuff, what the scenario was for them -it’s times like these where I feel the discipline of all that preparation helps liberate a sense of playfulness in the moment. Such a great day I even had energy for a run (see pic of me post run. No evidence that I had been running so you’ll just have to believe me). Got a lot of work to do on the solo show idea tomorrow, but will be back to the novel writing in Wednesday I think.
