It's possible I could blame the big bowl of vanilla ice cream draped with caramel AND chocolate sauce for keeping me sleepless, but that wasn't all.
My characters, Mose and Tully and Will, Papaw and Candice, Mom and Mama B, they WOULD NOT SHUT UP last night. Literally. I was lying in bed with my eyes closed and the next chapter would appear and their little imaginary conversations would unfold. Oh, I write beautifully in these nether moments, but I am always too tired and too lazy to crawl out from under the warm covers to do it.
Do your characters keep you up at night?
I'm close to finishing the first draft of this one and I'm going to be really sad. I really love all these folks, even if they do keep me up at night with their incessant chatter.
