It doesn’t take much to reignite a spark.
While in Milwaukee visiting friends last weekend, a buddy asked me how novel writing month was going. I was a bit dejected as I was significantly behind where I hoped to be.
“Well, what is your story about,” he asked me.
I broke into my standard explanation of the plot – a child is hit by a car while playing with friends and is in a coma for years. Doctors eventually find a way to try and bring the now-man out of his coma, and that’s where the fun starts.
And that’s when it happened. I was reenergized about writing just by explaining the plot to a friend.
