Feeling the Flash

Yesterday, I was early for class, so I sat down on the floor with my mug of coffee, my pad of paper and my book with various writings and started plotting. It was coming together! I could feel the different pieces merging into one story and it is incredibly exciting.

It also seems that everything I am doing, watching, and seeing is part of the process. While my teacher spoke last night about ones Higher Purpose and Quantum Physics, I found myself inserting a specific plot point into the novel. I have been doing some research too. Compiling songs, looking at the period that I am writing about and letting those stories, both personal and fictional to weave together. I feel like I am on fire and it is exciting!
