Following a highly motivating creative writing weekend hosted by Adrienne Dines and Barbara Large of Creative Words Matter recently, my creative juices have positively begun to ooze.

I have picked up one, of my many, Works in Progress and literally cannot put it down.  It is a piece that I always knew I could run with but life got in the way which, I know, is a lame excuse, so maybe all it needed was some enthusiastic guidance from Barbara and Adrienne to put me back on track.

I have taken the dog-eared manuscript by the throat with renewed enthusiasm and have effectively re-written it in a short space of time, almost to the first complete draft stage.  It is all in my head, I just need to get it on to paper.  So, I am making the most of this creative volcano that is exploding inside me. I am up all hours during the night staring into the computer screen, or up before dawn, honing the storyline.  My main character has grown up a bit and I like her much better this time around.

Life for her in Chapter One had been a challenge.  Unfulfilled and now unmotivated. She needs a kick up the backside to get her going again.  Will she get it?  Of course she will, because I have lit the fuse for an explosive ending.
