Today was a great start. I began with an image and took off from there. I’ve already begun to veer from the vision I had for chapter 1 in my outline, but that’s okay. It’s not a big veer, just a little one. I thought I would be going on this non-stop writing fest, but I woke up late after staying up way late tinkering with my netbook, then after about an hour of working, I got hungry so I called a friend and went out for brunch. By the way people, just because YOU like the smell of your perfume, doesn’t mean that the person sitting right behind you in a restaurant won’t get sick at its overpowering stench. Seriously.
