i'm sure you know from reading here lately that i'm having doubts about my 3rd draft. part of me wants to start on it now and part of me is scared to death. (the scared part is winning so far. except for the scene i wrote with my son, i've got nothing.)
the 250 word thing with Inkygirl is helping, but i still needed that umph to get me moving. today that umph came in the strangest form.
my daughter was watching an online episode of PBS's Arthur and the main character of that episode was having doubts about her story. her muse (in the form of Neil Gaiman i think) told her several things, but the one that caught my attention was, "Trust your heart. Trust your story."
very cool as far as i'm concerned.
it makes me remember the fortune i got in my Panda Express fortune cookie a couple of weeks ago that said, "Your mind is full of ideas. Make use of them."
yeah. God talks to me in fortune cookies and episodes of Arthur.
