Well, today, I did it. I made the start. And it was a good start. I edited two chapters. I added a whole new depth to my main character (and the story in general) that is going to mean changing the rest of the manuscript. And it's great! I love it!
I added 500 words to the first two chapters, even after cutting out all the random, meaningless extras. It's surprising what happens when you just find something you love and go with it.
And now, I feel the need to write again, like I haven't in a long while. I just can't stop myself. So, here's to more writing in the very near future.
