The Power of Sleep

I’ve been having trouble figuring out how to end a chapter in a book I’m currently writing.  I’d been mulling this over in my mind for days.  I’ve got the entire chapter plotted, but I didn’t know how to close it in a way that would drive the next scene.  I couldn’t get to sleep last night because I was fighting with it so hard.  Then this morning, I woke up and BOOM!  There it was, a line spoken by another character.  It wasn’t the person I was trying to make speak, and now I know why she wouldn’t talk.  It’s because this line is perfect coming from the other character.  It matches the motivation and sets up an interesting turn of events.

Yay!  I love how sleep works.  And that makes me want to get back to the Dream Wreakers and all the interesting research that comes along with it.  Soon, I promise… very soon.  It’s next on my writing calendar.
