Thinking Time

No matter how fast I want to write, there always comes a time when I have to sit down and think -- probably every few chapters of the book, filtering the misty idea of the story into words. Going back and tweaking things -- or going forward and noting something down for the end of the book and the black moment.

And is that one long sentence! But I'm barely awake and I have a LITTLE more snoozing time before the sun comes up and I need to hit the office.

Sleep and thinking time can't often be hurried. I usually go around saying "huh," a lot, and I fervently believe in letting the subconscious doing most of the work, which, since I believe in it, it usually does.

May the writing come quickly today.
