Flying and Wishes

Aren't those deeply imbedded in jinni lore?

I am flying by on this draft. So far, on day two, I'm at 3,363 words*. And I wish I had a jinn around at the moment. I've got a big wish to make...but I'll settle for hope. Hope is free, it's attainable, and it's eternal--I hope this excitement and thrill I'm having while writing this draft is sustainable. I need it for the whole damn thing.

Now I'm off to bed.


*Not so speedy for you Robots, but for this mortal writer, it's fast. As fast as...*searches for cheesy metaphor*...a flying carpet. Or would a flying carpet be, indeed, slow? Would it fly more like an albatross, or a jet? I bet I know how my personal carpet would fly...

***** Cindy Pon is having a HUGE YA "people-of-color" book giveaway, by the way. Go check it out! I hope I win...those are all awesome books!

So fantastic! Happy to read about your second draft going well. Mine is stumbling and stalling. Well, to be accurate I, not the draft, am stumbling and stalling. Wrote about 300 words in June. Yuck! Will find speed and magic in your flying carpet, in your inspiration and thrill. ;)

That's great progress! Mine is limping along at the moment. Limp, limp, limp, CRASH, it goes.
