In the Dark of Night...

Night time is really the best time to work. All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep. ~Catherine O'Hara

... is when the best ideas come to me.

Last night, as I was drifting off to sleep I figured out a HUGE problem I was having with Stiller Creek. I even started writing the new version in my head AND wonder of wonders, I remembered it this morning without having written it down.

YAY.

So, as soon as I get DH off to work, I'm going to sit down and write it.

I've decided that once I get it fixed, I'm going to resend to the editor at Samhain again. Resplendence didn't invite me to resubmit (though she liked my writing and asked me to send anything new) and it looks like WRP is really pushing out their release dates. Hopefully, I'll get it ready to resubmit soon. It's been greatly on my mind.

In other news, I was awakened at 3:30 this morning by DD racing for the bathroom to throw up. Thankfully, she made it, but because she'd been holding it in, most of it ended up coming out her nose. I know, ICK, right? And DD is prone to nosebleeds, so when she blew her nose to get out the residue, she began to gush blood. We finally got THAT taken care of and the blood in her throat made her nauseous again, so ... you guessed it. More throwing up.

It's been an interesting morning.

She went back to bed. Not so, me.

**yawn**

I think naptime may be called for today.

Your Walk Says You're Approachable



You are intelligent, thoughtful, and even philosophical. You like to go unnoticed for the most part.

Other people see you as humble and down to earth. You don't put on airs.

You are assertive, energetic, and curious about the world. You never hold back, and you're often the first to try something.

You tend to be all work and very little play. You are too responsible to let loose.



That's about 75% right...

I usually think I'm going to remember all the brilliant dialogue I wrote in my head in the middle of the night and promptly forget everything. It's most frustrating. I'm glad you remembered everything and hope you had a good writing session.

Um, I think naptime is a definite.

For me, the best thoughts are in the shower. I always thought that might be because I'm a water baby at heart (cancer/July, always loved to swim, love beaches, lakes, etc., etc.)

Good luck with the writing. If that happens to me, I've learned just to get up and jot it down. Too many times it's left my head and I draw a blank in the morning! So glad you remembered it all!

Have fun.

Good luck with your revisions and submission.

I hope DD is feeling better today.

re quiz: Your Walk Says You're Approachable - except for that statement about all work - not likely; it's 80% true.

Sorry to hear about DD. Hope she feels a lot better soon.

Yay on fixing the problem!

OOoh, my DD is prone to nosebleeds too! She got the mother of all nosebleeds on Mother's Day one year. Sheesh. I thought we were going to have to go the hospital that day.

Hugs all around!

I think a nap is definitely a good idea! Sorry to hear about your Daughter. I hope she feels better soon. That's great news, that you remembered the changes you wanted to make.
My quiz result was almost the same as yours and Dru, except for the last bit.

You are a kid at heart. You love to have fun and believe that life is for living.


I like it, but no one has accused me of being assertive. *G* Curious, yes. *G*

I hope you get your nap and have a pleasant day.
