So far, I’ve read Passion Unleashed and finished Skin Game (I’ve been reading it slowly on my iPhone), and I started Heart’s Blood. I’ve been writing in my journal by hand. Oh, I did sort of read through my Greek story (only have 1 chapter), and started reading through the SFR one, but hadn’t really gotten into either.
Mostly, I’ve been enjoying the silence.
You know, that constant clamor in my head, story A warring with story B for attention, while Gregar is yammering away non-stop.
It was mostly quiet, and I really was trying to simply turn off the stories for awhile. I’ve been in the mood to listen to Phantom of the Opera, so that soundtrack has been playing since late last week. And while listening to those powerful words in the semi-silence in my head, a puzzle piece fell into place for a story that I wasn’t even going to try and write. (Because I couldn’t figure out the heart of the story, and if I don’t have the heart, why even try to write it?)
Sigh. So much for vacation, right? Because somehow, I’ve come out of two days with a new story to work on…
Ironically, its working title is HEARTFIRES.
