Holding thoughts — for a little

by Radio Somewhere

I really should have gone straight home to add to my NaNoWriMo word count. But I’m over 10,000 already, although tech issues on their site prevented me updating last night. And I have found the same happy groove I found last year. Perhaps I just want to savor it.

So I have stopped for coffee and have found myself just enjoying the sight of the early darkness outside and the lights of downtown Seattle across the bay; looking forward to my walk home and then dinner before I settle down to write for a couple of hours.

Last night, I ended up writing things I hadn’t even thought of until I saw the words appearing on the screen.

I can remember where I left the story last night — and where I was planning to go next — but I may end up being surprised again.

That’s what I enjoy so much about this.
