At first, one might thing this was the fear of being tricked, or perhaps the fear of filing your taxes, but no, it’s the fear of the number 13. I’m going to sally forth as usual today, writing a brand new beginning to Ever-after.
New beginnings or endings are not uncommon for me, since they are arguably the most important two chapters in a book. First chapters, especially should tell you what the entire book is about in such a way that you don’t realize it until it’s over and you circle back to it. And since the focus has sharpened to a fine-point to me, I have to reflect that with a new beginning. Still . . . it is changing yet, and last night while brushing my teeth I sparked on an idea to shift my new, unwritten chapter 180 degrees . . . and everything crystalized like adjusting the lens on a spy scope. It was a good premise, now it’s shiny.
I may not post next week. I am soooo excited about getting this on paper, and I want to use every hour of my work day–and since all I’m going to be doing is wash-rinse-repeat, the drama box will be very boring. I will however be dropping in at FB for progress comments and the like. You don’t have to join FB to look at my reader page.
See you when I’m back!
