I think I'm going to have to break down and write the first chapter of the Captain's story. It is coming to me so vividly in the details, I know I'm going to have to break my hiatus or lose it. A part of me has sort of missed the regular writing, though, so maybe that's part of it.
When you take a writing break, do you have a lot of ideas come to you? Is it because of the rest you are taking, do you think? Or the muse just likes to strike at the most inopportune time? LOL
What are you working on? How's your writing going?
