Novel developments

Today I have been writing. I’ve been a little stalled on my novel because I knew what the antagonist needed to do to move the plot forward, but I’d failed to give them a reason to do it. I had a motive, the bad guy did not. After Rob and I went to bed last night, the solution popped into my head along with the next three chapters. I got out of bed and wrote two and a half chapters.

Needless to say, I slept in this morning. Rob has gone off to the winery to help Ben, his replacement, get settled in. I’m not expecting him home tonight, but would love to be surprised. I have done nothing on the pantry floor yet, though it’s looking like it will be a lovely form of procrastination from my novel.
