It's always fascinating

I always find it fascinating when I'm trying to puzzle through something in a piece of writing and suddenly the character says something I just wasn't prepared for. I'm mentally trying to fit together the next few scenes for Dreamwalker so I can write chapter two (and pray it lives up to Chapter 1's reviews) and suddenly I hear in my head that Traci's getting a visitor named Shane. And she's like yeah, Shane's coming, like it means something, and I'm going who the hell is Shane??

Characters are talking to me. I'm... scared... almost. It hasn't been this real, this vivid, in so long. And I'm sort of expecting it to be taken away again without warning. I don't know why I'm this lucky right now. I don't know why Dreamwalker is working. But it is. The compliments I've received are heady scary stuff. Because now I have to keep it up and continue the good work. I might actually have something here. And I'm not sure I know what to do with it.
