"Well, I am not coughing as much, and my voice is mostly back. The turn of season always brings out the strongest allergic reactions in me. There is a bright side to living in an antihistamine/decongestant haze for weeks: I dreamed a lot.
Weaving in and out of consciousness, I thought a lot about those boring things that interest me, like narrative theory, story structure, and what I want to work on in my heart of hearts; and honestly, not a lot has changed.
I've had some insights into Blake Snyder's ideas, but I need to build those up a little more before I share, but the benefit is, I think I figured out how to move forward with my own projects.
I've got a bit of writing to do today, and hopefully, that will be followed by a squeal of joy this evening. If this doesn't get me my groove back, then maybe I need to visit an island."
