And I’m exhausted.
I find when I’m working on a new story, the entire creative process causes all the synapses in my brain to start firing so fast they can’t shut off. So I have the story running through my head 24 hours a day. While my body is begging to go to sleep at 2 a.m., my brain is planning and plotting and terrorizing (or seducing) my characters. It’ll last about ten days or so before things settle down, but in the meantime, I’m taking advantage of it and trying to get as much written as I can before it shuts off. Even if I’m working on no more than two to three hours sleep a night.
