Had a wild nightmare last night. Woke up fresh at 5:07am, and proved it by falling asleep again for 20 minutes. Then while I made coffee in the still-dark apartment, I heard a stranger’s phone ringing in my living room.
I froze for a second, and then melted back into pouring the brew and stirring it. I’d simply set a different ring to my alarm, that’s all.
But these two things worked wonders. The scene I thought I’d work on disappeared; another took its place and how! First really good scene day in a while. The inspiration was up, the atmosphere there, the characters invested… Awesome scene day, all because of something heard… 🙂
