I haven't been writing like I should. The summer doldrums hit hard in August and I just couldn't seem to get excited or energized to come up with new ideas that were worth pursuing. Until today.
Tropical Storm Hermine blew through bringing heavy rains and wind gusts that tossed the trees around leaving debris in its wake. While the winds blew and the rain lashed against the windows, my writer's mind began to work over time. I came up with a couple of really good and spooky "dark and stormy night" ideas for stories.
It feels good to get excited about writing again. Tomorrow, while I drag all the fallen branches and debris to a pile, maybe I'll even get a couple of really good "after the storm ends" ideas, too.
