After a well timed kick in the pants by a friend (She knows who she is so I won't need to say her name), that made me tear up and sniffle, I went and took a nice, hot shower to relax and regroup.
After that shower, and a good scrubbing with my favorite body soap, Caress' Exotic Oil Infusion: Moroccan (I just LOVE the scent!!), I took a notebook, my favorite pen, and went to bed while the hubby continued to watch TV.
This gave me a good half hour of alone time in which I sat down and wrote down a "bullet list" for the story I'm writing. I can't seem to do outlines before the story as then it makes me feel I'm writing to a formula and then I'm constantly fighting myself as I write. So, I write a list of things I want to happen or explain for that chapter in a list. An author friend, Yasmine Galenorn (you can find her blog here), uses the term "bullet list" for it, so I think I'll "appropriate" the term as well. =)
Anyway, so I wake up this morning with a renewed vigor for writing "Jaguar Lord" and "Moonlight and Magick".
