I know I'm on the right track when the book I'm writing is more exciting to me than the book I'm reading by a favorite author.
I usually come home for lunch anticipating a good half-hour to read, but the last few days I've been coming home thinking, yeah! I can finish up the scene with Russal at the graveside of his family. Bittersweet, but gives us insight into his motivations.
I absolutely love writing.
