All In The Timing

Struggled with my word count yesterday (but hit it); nailed it today, with vigor and joy, before 9:00 am. So what was different? Timing. The successful process for moving forward on +JIHADI (novel by Brandon Toropov)  appears to be: Think of the scene the night before, before going to sleep; think of it again while showering; dictate and tweak after praying and feeding the cats. Yes, I believe praying and feeding the cats to be mandatory elements of my creative process.

Today's scene also benefited tremendously from a synchronous encounter with this brilliant Victor Frankl lecture. Thank you +Nina Mideast Journal for the share!
