As backstory, while Book One in my Chantilly Lace series is heading out to some friends for final read-through and editing (the novel will be available for purchase by Christmas), I'm deep in research mode on Book Two: taking notes, sketching outlines, listening for the voices of characters, watching for settings to reveal themselves.
During the writing and research journey, sometimes I fall completely into a scene and quick-as-a-wink I've written a couple thousand words. At other times, full scene visualizations go dormant, but that doesn't mean I'm not buried in the imaginary world I've created. It can feel like puzzle pieces spread in front of me and I know they all fit together even if it takes a while to put them all together. And then - woosh! Creative moments strike without warning - my breath catches, my heart pounds, and I feel like I'm vibrating from the inside out! Today held one of those precious soaring moments!
