Last Tuesday night, I suffered a seriously horrific nightmare so horrific, so gory that it immediately shocked me awake. What really woke me up was when a sometime co-worker (whom I hadn't seen in almost a year) set himself on fire with such a beatific smile I nearly had the shakes. I couldn't go back to sleep, and, in the darkness, my head became filled with all these different characters and their voices telling me their story. I finally did drift off to sleep, and, later that morning, I woke up with one helluva migraine and the seeds of a novel pounding my cranium. Two days later, that same sometime co-worker (whom I hadn't seen in almost a year) appeared at work. I decided to take that as an omen.
So, I'll be off for a little while to see if I actually do have a novel in my head. I'll post occasionally, but, for now, I'm taking a little break from Tome. Feel free to drop me a line.
