Anyway, last night I wrote quite a few pages, and there ideas were flowing nice and freely. I had a clear idea of the next few scenes, and was hopeful that I might finish the story by next week.
Then, as I was going to bed, I suddenly got a drabble idea, but I could cope with that. Rather than lie awake writing it in my head for hours, I got up and wrote it, then went to bed again... but then I was suddenly struck with an idea for a whole new story, and lay awake for hours anyway, writing dialogue in my head.
I started writing it as soon as I got up, and have been scribbling down notes on it like a madwoman all day at work. I normally displace like anything before finally getting down to writing, but this one is just writing itself. So once again it's going to be goodbye to the AU for a little bit, while I get this new idea finished.
The new one, by the way, is a Diana Wynne Jones story. I've no idea what it will be called, but for now, call it, "When Howl met Chrestomanci"...
