Amazing things...

Sometimes when I sit down to write, I am amazed at the ideas that pop out onto the page. While I have spoken at some length about my process for my next book, and the protracted mental "design" phase that I am in, I haven't really talked about the virtues of spontaneous writing.

Today, when I sat down to tentatively write down some ideas, a scene and an entire plot arc all "snapped" into place for me. It's an amazing feeling. A major character had one of his key plot points solidified in the passage that I wrote today. I'd love to say more, but I don't want to spoil any surprises.
