Okay, so last night I was up till about three o’clock writing. I was in a zone and I didn’t want to stop. I didn’t write a ton, but it was enough to keep me going until the early morning. I didn’t have to work the next day, so I was able to sleep in. It was awesome.
I was able to write a scene that I’ve been looking forward to writing for a while. Once I started it, I didn’t want to stop. Soon, I realized that my eyes weren’t staying open anymore. It was good too, because I had just ended the chapter, so I figured it would be a good place to stop and get some shut eye.
I like it when I get inspired like that, and all I want to do is finish the scene or chapter, I just zone out, and focus only on the story and how it’s going to play out. Now, I have no idea how good it is, because as I wrote, I was getting more and more tired. Some of it might not even make sense now, but it felt good to write it.
To those of my readers who are writers: When you write, do you ever get days where you get into this focused state, and the next thing you know it’s three in the morning?
