We Have Only Just Begun


Chapter One has been started.

It happened last night at approximately 11 p.m. Kids in bed. Hubby snoring. Cats romping around upstairs.

I couldn't wait any longer. I thought about starting tomorrow, when I was fresh and ready to go, when I had my music playing and my candles lit.

Instead, I started when my eyelids were drooping, when my body cried out for sleep, when the noises of the basement accompanied me and nothing else.

Don't think, just write kept going through my mind. Prayers were sent. Again and again. Please show me I haven't lost the ability to write. Please show me I can still do this.

And those prayers were answered at 11:00 p.m. Words flowed. Imagery emerged. Characters spoke.

Ahh...bliss.
