I trust my process. I knew if I gave myself space, the inspiration would come, and it did.
Today the dear husband and I took a get lost trip in the beautiful country around
Bell Buckle, Tennessee. Poverty and reconstruction after the Civil War had such a beautiful way of preserving antiquity in the Nashville surrounds. As I viewed the vistas, got a bit sunburned, and let my mind wander, I heard what I needed to take my book further.
I always have a pad and pen with me wherever I go, and I jotted my inspiration down. So so happy!

That's right. Less than 4000 words, and I will have my book ready for proofreading. I've become comfortable with my process. I get inspired, I write until said inspiration is on paper, and then I'm done for a bit. I go on to whatever fuels my creativity next - that might be a good dose of sleeping, reading, or painting, but whatever it is I respect my brain's need for refueling, and I wait until it is the right time for writing. It has served me well. I am so close. I am going to meet my goal of 70,000 by my August 22 birthday.
