Coup de foudre!

It hit me last night - so hard that I could feel all of me jangling in anticipation and I actually had butterflies!

I know what I have to write.
I know what happens.

Better still, I'M EXCITED.

This means putting my current novel - only just started anyway - on the back-burner. I like that story and I like the characters, but last night I realised I'm not excited about writing it.

My new WIP is called 'Springville' (tribute to and partly inspired by a beautiful song by The Decemberists called June Hymn).

It's a supernatural time-slip, an old idea of mine that didn't work the first time I started it, but the muse has spoken and I know where I'm going now.

I have never planned anything in my life, but today...


 
Hope you're all having an inspiring weekend!
 
 
Please forgive me if I go off and write for a bit now, but I'll be back later to catch up with all the blogs I've been neglecting.
 
A big thank you to everyone who commented on my last post and offered help and advice.

Hi. I just came over from Murees Dupe's blog. She awarded eleven blogs (including us) the Liebster Award and I'm just stopping by all the other recipients to say hi.

Happy writing.

It's great when we're excited about an idea and know what we want to do with it. Hope it's going well and you're still enthusiastic.

"Coup de foudre" really sounds like a bad word, doesn't it? Congratulations. Nothing better than having it all gel up in your head. Sometimes when you're feeling insecure about something it means it wasn't really ready to go yet and inside you knew it.
