Sleepwalking my way through life: Except not as messy...



Except not as messy...

It snuck up on me, quickly and quietly when I least suspected it. I was relaxing in the brief ten minutes I had before work began, sitting back in the semi-comfy chair and burying myself in a non-university related book. I was totally unprepared for it; my mind was in a completely separate place when this little beauty came up behind me. It whispered quietly in my ear, a soft whisper that lit up my eyes and made my mouth curve into a smile.

I had an epiphany.

It started on the edge of my mind, hiding tentatively, but sprang into the light oh so suddenly. I looked up from my book, my eyes shimmering with hope. I held the thought delicately in my mind, racing upstairs to my desk before I scratched the idea into my notebook, making sure I did not miss anything out. Recently my Nano progress was slowing to a practical halt, and I was becoming more and more frustrated with my lack of progress. But last night I wrote nonstop for an hour, pouring out ideas into my laptop until sleep overcame me. My character is easier to tackle, the plot begins to make more sense, I can write in a certain style, and I can give something that English students can analyse the crap out of.

It was so… amazing, to finally find something that works. All my frustration and annoyance was washed away in the relief of this little orgasm of an idea. Hell, I might even need a cigarette.

*waves arms around* (You know how!!)

My NaNo is very stop-start, and the switching of tenses and persons is confusing even me, the unconfusable!! :-D

Good luck with it!
