2800 on Talyn

Got 2800 words yesterday, and the coolest surprise. A character who’d left the book fairly early in the story suddenly reappeared, adding some great complexity and the possibility of interesting unforseen complications, as well as some depth.

And I woke up this morning after having the most interesting dream about fog. I think that dream is going to play a part in the next Tor 250,000 word novel.

    I hardly ever remember my dreams, but when I do, they almost always make it into my WIP. The last one totally changed the direction of the novel.

    I turned a dream in to what I consider my best (of course, unsold 🙁 short story to date.

    No, not the dream about sailing the Amazon with the Justice League 😛 or the one about riding in a department store elevator with the devil. The other one. ::winks::
