Funny what happens when you get up in the middle of the night...

Funny what happens when after less than three hours of sleep you get up (sinus headache - I had to hold my head up to let my sinuses open and back the headache down), groggy and sleepy, and attempt to write some to pass the time.

I don't recommend sleep writing. It does the oddest things to your syntax...When I got up this morning and went back to my writing, I realized I had done things like repeated the subject phrase more than once, and left the verb out of a different clause, put a quote mark in the middle of a quote, because evidently I didn't realize I was already in a dialogue moment...LOL.

But it wasn't gobblygook. It made sense.

So I got a little further along. But I'll have to watch that in the future.

On another note, I have noticed as the year progresses, my writing is taking a turn towards darkness...I doubt I'd ever write a true darkfic as an InuYasha fanfic, cause I like Inu too much to do that to him, but I've always liked horror stories and good mystery, and lately that tone is sneaking in all over the place. Interesting.

I signed up for the NaNoWriMo. I have a non-InuYasha story percolating in the back of my mind, and yes, it's a horror story so far. We'll see if that helps me get it out.

Look for the next chapter of ATE to be popping out in the next day or two. This is what happens when I'm supposed to be sewing....
