I missed a week of Inspiration Monday, but I’m back.
I’ve been busy writing draft one of my third book, which is actually the prequel in the series. I’m about one hundred pages in. My manuscripts usually end up being 500-600, but I have a lot of ground to cover in this prequel and I’m starting to wonder if it’s going to turn into two novels. Or three. I’m also
procrastinating working on the synopsis for book one so I can start querying. It’s written, but needs major tweaking.
So here’s my attempt at this week’s Inspiration Monday.
* * * * *
I dreamed this. Wind so violent, tearing at my hair, my clothes. The ground rumbles underfoot, and the city falls before my eyes. The dust becomes a new entity, rising up, higher than the top of the once highest building, yet suddenly the wind cuts off and I’m shielded inside a clean, soundless space, like an insect caught in an upside down glass.
You dreamed this, from the other side. Your distance flavored your terror with helplessness. You didn’t know I was inside that glass.
And when I woke up, you were there, but I was not. I was still inside that glass, watching you try to wake me.
