Story Revelations at Odd Times

Day 11 Wordcount: 500 (Glint of an Artifact, Short Story #3)

Last line written tonight: But no emotions. No pain, no fear or terror.

Yes, still working on Glint of an Artifact. I’ll get it finished at some point!

Meanwhile, I’ve been working away at this story, and what happens while taking a shower? Yep, a revelation about a different story, a novel that will be going into editing hopefully in July.

No, it couldn’t be about the short story I’m writing now, or the short story I’ll be writing next, or the novella I’ll be working on starting June 1st. No, this is something I haven’t actively worked on since spring of 2010. But, apparently my Muse has been stewing over this one issue all this time and she suddenly decided to pop out the answer tonight! It has me excited to work on the novel again, despite having other projects in the queue before it.

I’m happy for the answer, but the timing stinks. And, as usual, the Muse doesn’t care.

Uppity Muses can be so annoying.

The challenge in question is the Forward Motion May “Story-A- Day” challenge. See my previous post about the rules. The goal is to achieve the 10 short story level.
