Day one hundred sixty-nine of my 365 Day Writing Project.
I got a late start tonight. I will admit I was reluctant to try to get into writing that late. But I did. And the words flew onto the page. This was yet another example of how pushing through those moments of “I can’t” or “I don’t feel like it” or “I’ll put it off until tomorrow” really pays off. Just write. It is that simple. And look at what happened. I jammed out 1,500 words and the story took an awesome turn I wasn’t planning on. Tonight was definitely one of those times when writing fiction was thrilling, fulfilling and just plain fun. Like I used to do before I started this project, if I had listened to my reluctant inner voice and bailed on writing tonight, I would have really missed out.
As for the turn in the story, **SPOILER ALERT.** Do you remember that character I introduced in a post for Day 137, an older gentleman named Lyndon? I mentioned him again in the post for Day 153 when I talked about him parting ways with the main character. Well, he’s back. In a surprising turn, he and the main character are together again. And it’s great. I couldn’t be more thrilled about his return and I think it improves the story line. I’m excited to write more about Lyndon and Skylar’s current adventure tomorrow.
And when that reluctant inner voice returns some day, I will immediately ignore it. It will never cheat me out of a great writing session ever again.
