It’s a magic number. Yes, it is. It’s a magic number. The past and the present and the future. Faith and hope and charity. The heart and the brain and the body gives you 3. It’s a magic number.
As in…3A.M. is the best time to write. 🙂
Unfortunately, it’s also one of the best times to sleep. Doh.
It is true, though. I was up writing at 3A.M. I didn’t intend to be. In fact, I was in bed at the very reasonable hour of 1:30 this morning. The problem was that once I turned off my light, I had words spilling out of my brain and I knew that if I ignored them I would lose them. So I wrote. And I wrote. And I wrote.
I haven’t much to show for it except several new ideas that are challenging my current NaNoWriMo plan. I have to honor this with some serious thought because my initial NaNo plan was to write something entirely non-related to The Legend of Ae. In fact, I wanted to distance myself from the fantasy realm altogether. I confess, I probably won’t make a final decision until November 1st, when I am forced to begin.
The other thing I’m working on is my Writing Niche. I have this huge, gorgeous desk that has been well-suited to my many endeavors–drawing maps, journaling, scrapbooking, letter writing, reading, studying scripture, et cet. Unfortunately, it has long been overrun with niknaks and candles and binders and card stock. My goal is to entirely resettle my desk before November 1st so that I have a comfortable place to write. I also want to surround that space with words and images that inspire me.
So that is what I will be doing today, I think. It’s a much bigger undertaking than I want to admit. Wish me luck!
