There is no doubt, the Bitch is back, and am I glad to see her!
Yesterday, I wrote most of a new chapter for the next novel, Bindings & Spines. Just over 1300 words, put down and those words set a certain path before me. It opened up a small part of the novel I wasn’t sure I was going to traverse, but now, with my Muse giving me the words for that chapter, it’s inclusion or not was no longer a question.
With that chapter, I could now add a new wrap up chapter, which also opened the way for me to include a small element of the novel, enrich it slightly and weave it through the course of the tale. Mostly it will serve as a bit of a light hearted break, a jog into the slightly silly to adjust the flow of mood in the novel.
Just to prove she was back for some serious work, this morning I sat down and my Muse opened up the understanding for how that new last chapter would go. I wrote essentially the whole thing in one sitting – 1600 words.
It feels so good so have those words pour out of me, and I think I can say – the fever has caught me because…the Bitch is Back!
