I read my horoscope yesterday… I don’t hold much weight to them but it drops into my email each morning, a quick cursory glance and it’s deleted with a little laugh and a pfft! For some reason I forgot to delete it yesterday, maybe because the day turned out to be a hectic one.
“Expect at least one ‘aha’ moment today, as your amazing personal energy takes over your brain and forces understanding of some previously difficult topic — or person. It all just starts to click! “
Seriously? An ‘aha’ moment? Yeah, okay! I’m going to be too busy for one of those!
The phone rang, hubby asking me how my writing was going, “Nearly finished” was the reply. Now this book is beyond a book or a novel. You could buy to just have a cheap door stop! He laughed, “I’m telling you! You going to have to break it up!”
I could feel a stubborn look fall on my face “Huh? Nooo!” He keeps ‘strongly suggesting’ that I make it a trilogy… pfft! We ended the call quickly, he had to go to a meeting.
Just in case you’re not quite grasping how I felt, it really was ‘A trilogy? Pfft!’
Later in the day I am on a Skype call with Julie of mybodymyself.wordpress.com , a wonderful lady I have met through blogging. We discussed various subjects and then the conversation turned to ‘the book, the doorstop’. She innocently suggests that maybe it would do well with a sequel, for it to be split or a trilogy… huh?
Okay… see that brick over there that was just slammed into my head? Get rid of it, it hurt!… Oh, that’s the ‘aha’ moment!
Not a door stop!
Suddenly it all made sense!
I went over my writing and realized that it could be made into a trilogy… go figure. Sometimes it really is difficult to see the woods for the trees.
I woke this morning, refreshed dug into the writing and split it easily into 3 books (Yeah, I really had written that much!)
Now my day has been spent editing my “first book”. It will be called… ‘Broken Ring’ of the ‘Ride to Liberty’ series
I am feeling really excited about it. I know that when I have finished editing it, I will then be sending it off to the editor to dissect, hopefully it will be polished off nicely and the ‘Pfft’s’ will be filed away for another ‘aha’ moment waiting to be discovered.
Have you had an ‘aha’ moment this week?
