Mmm, this feels good. I'm on Week Two of our great Story Challenge, and I'm nearly done with Story No. 2 (veryveryvery tentatively titled "Wolf's Kin"). The best news is that the idea just seized me this morning, as Patrick and I were taking Nika for a walk. By the time we sat down to write in a cafe, an hour and a half later, I felt like I was literally itching with impatience to start writing down the voice I heard. Man, this rocks! I love it when stories come so naturally. It's so rare and so precious, I feel like I've really been given a gift with this one.

Which is especially great because I had such a hard time writing last week's story. But my sense is that slogging through and making myself finish that story is what made the ideas start clicking in my subconscious, so that I could really have fun with this one. And it's got Croatian stuff! And wolves! Oh, this is making me happy. :)

Patrick's making mulled wine to celebrate the start of Week Two (and my story-so-far, which he's said very nice things about). Nika's licking the carpet. And I'm bubbling. A good day, all in all.
