A Novel Breakthrough!

It has come to me.

In a flash of inspiration.

Over a cup of tea with an old friend.

My novel.

I know what it is going to be now. That's why I haven't been able to write it, because I knew what I wanted to say but I didn't have a structure to hang it on.

At last a little seed was planted and has flourished into a wonderfully organic shape full of avenues and twists and turns, with lots of places to stop and take in the view, the sights, the sounds.

I'm Soooooooooooo excited!

Hay un camino enfrente de mi lo que puedo coger... and I can run with it now, following the path wherever it may lead, safe in the knowledge that I won't get lost along the way!

Watch the word count because I've a feeling it's going to start moving again... very soon!

Lane - it's crackling like poor wiring at the moment (as opposed to whizzing - and not helped much by the fact that today I am having to plan grammar/language seminars, and then child lit seminars... and then I can write (if I've daylight left!)

Isn't it great when those little epiphanies (bless you!) take place. Sorry I always think epiphany (bless you!) sounds like a sneeze.
