I just wrote 8,099 words in Darker London. I haven't written anything significant there since February at least. And today was 11 scenes (one backdated). And I feel more like myself than I have in months.

I forgot how good just writing by myself can feel, not that I am saying it's better than writing with someone else. It's just different because you have to create everything from start to finish and all of it in between. I opened windows and had no idea what I was going to wrote about and things flowed. It's been FOREVER since I was able to do that. Everything has to be planned and thought of beforehand recently and if it isn't planned it doesn't happen. But not today, this was just "I want to write for Deirdre" BAM. Scene.

It's like a weight lifted off my chest that I didn't even know was there. I love my creative outlets. But Darker London will always own my soul because those characters are mine and not borrowed from elsewhere. And it feels good to write something that is absolutely and completely yours and to write it yourself. I love writing with other people, but I did this all by myself and I am proud I finally could again.

Fuck, I feel awesome.

I love this feeling. I haven't felt it in years.

I am really excited! I haven't been sleeping well here (I'll wake up WIDE AWAKE in the middle of the night and either have to lie in the dark stressing about life or reading (I got through an entire book and a quarter last night) and then once I'm too tired to read but my brain hasn't stopped whirring I make myself think about DL till I manage to fall asleep. It works. I haven't written anything yet but I've been catching up with everyone in my head. I remember how much of a relief it is to write, and I need to sit down and actually do it. Tricky here though. But I have a million hours on the plane home...

I am so glad you feel awesome! I miss you! I hope you'll be awake when I get home but if you're asleep I'll understand too! I'm going to have a nap now before our epic viking feast, plus by the time I wake up it won't be 30 degrees anymore I HOPE.

That was what I was doing. Catching up with everyone. It felt awesome. I was then too tired yesterday to write the Spectre stuff I wanted, but I'll get there. All in good time. They're back in my head again, which is what matters.
