Late Night Ideas

For the past couple of nights, I've been unable to get to sleep because ideas for a story keep running through my head.  I write in my bedroom, so it's not surprising that ideas for a new story would crop up in my mind there, but it makes getting a good night's sleep difficult. 

At first, it was just a woman running from someone...well, let's be honest here.  I write romance, so it would most likely be a man she's trying to evade. Over and over that scene played out the other night, and I mentally filed it away right before I finally fell asleep.

Then the next night the story began to flesh itself out. I guess I could say I fleshed it out, but my mind was simply tumbling over ideas and I felt like I was along for the ride.  The hero of the story showed up, dark and mysterious, and he took up that brief bout of insomnia.

Then last night the story took off, so to speak, and I had to write down the ideas this morning when I woke up so I wouldn't forget them.  I have about a page of ideas so far, and I'm thinking novella.  I'm also thinking....and I admit I'm surprised myself that I'm thinking of going in this direction.....vampire.  I'll have to see what happens when I sit down to write, but so far that's where the idea stands. 

I do think this novella will be more erotic than my novels in the Destined Ones series, though.  It just seems to be moving in that direction each night.  More to come when I begin the story.

Urrgh!! Late night scribblings! I here ya! It seems to be my creative time, always been a night owl. So every since I started my novel I think I have aged about 10 years! I lay in bed awake plotting and scheming till my hubby tells me to stop thinking of my characters and go to sleep! If only it was that simple! No off button here I'm afriad!!
I Like the sounds of this idead of yours, keep going with it!!

Hi CJ!

I wrote the first chapter last night before bed, so it's moving along. I hope to get more into it tonight!
