I had a day, children.
An open a new excel doc because you’ve had an epiphany day. A waves of dopamine, twirling in wheat fields (in my mind) day.
This means the false start of the recent idea falls away, along with the “maybe I should print out those short forms and revise until something better happens” thoughts that immediately cause the inner pout fest. Because much like the boxer must shed roll after roll of sweaty, useless, disgusting flab – nope, sorry… that was Mr. Burns. >.>
But seriously. Today.
Stars included. It reminded me of “finding” Keepsake. ::takes a moment to drape herself romantically upon a chaise:: Whimsy.
And I realized: for me, ideas are not nearly inspiration enough. The gem – for me – is “finding” a concept. An idea defined by a specific scenario that inherently describes setting and character and conflict, all at once. It’s the difference between seeing a thread and seeing an entire tapestry in one shot. It’s. The best feeling on earth. (Okay, I don’t know because I can’t actually rank them side by side whether completing the execution compares… but there’s SOMETHING about the moment of conception.)
Children? I’ve had a day.
