Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

When Writing flows, Life is Good.

I know the title of this blog has to be an odd one, folks, but any writer will get the meaning — when we can’t write, we feel awful even if everything else is going right, while if we can, even if everything else is going to Hell in a hand basket, life is good.

This morning I woke up very early with one line of dialogue in my head, and started writing — about two and a half hours later, I had 3600 words of a new Elfyverse short story and was very well-pleased with myself.  I had no idea the one line I had was going to lead to all that creativity, and yet what I have makes sense — I was able to set up the story well, get my characters going, and they’re chatting nicely.  I’m unsure if this is a character study or if something’s going to actually happen, but whatever ends up being included in this story, I’m glad that my writing is flowing well.

How’s your writing going?
