It's not going to take much for me to be happy about my writing nowadays. Just the simple fact that I wrote today is cause enough for a celebration (and a blog post!). Sure, it's only another three pages so far, but it's THREE PAGES I didn't have a week or a month ago for that matter.
By finally finishing that scene, and that chapter, I'm now inspired to continue with the next chapter and scene, and I'm excited to see where it's going to go - because I have no idea. This is the fun part of writing without an outline or a plan - it can be a wild ride when the characters surprise you.
So bring it characters! Let's go for a ride!
