Working on the most recent revision of The Damnation of Memory, my new novel, and I've completed the first third of the manuscript. This is thrilling because for months and months I've been trying to come up with a scene that would fit between two other scenes and I finally wrote it tonight! I began it last night around 2AM and I just finished it tonight at 2:48 AM. This is a book meant to be written in the middle of the night, apparently. This was one of those parts of writing a book where I knew I was going to just have to wait around like some schmoe at a bus stop for the inspiration to finally arrive so I could finish it the right way. If you try to push through parts of a good story like that, you'll just end up with shit, so I waited it out. It was worth the wait!
