Edinburgh Castle from the highway, traveling at highway speeds while trying to catch a picture. It was foggy that day also when we returned to the city before I went home the next day.
This morning I woke at the ungodly hour of 4 AM and so because I couldn't get to sleep again, I began running movie scenes around in my mind. What would stop an arrow from penetrating too deeply?
What kind of arrow wound would be superficial enough to be livable?
How would someone who is on foot in a forest, outmaneuver someone who is on horseback?
Or if the other is on foot, get away from a man's longer stride if a woman fleeing for her life?
Why would Highlanders be there in the first place?
So I "see" different scenarios--and I imagine different ways that the story can work for me. And...I don't know.
LOL Hey, at 4 AM how can I know everything? Yet, it gives me lots of ideas, and the really weird part is that though I usually can't remember these things after waking (I did finally fall asleep)--this time, I can. All the details.
Which is always a really good sign!
For writing a new story like this, I have to do a lot of research. I won't stick with the story for long, since I need to write my word count still on The Highland Wolf in Paradise, and I did leave them in a sticky situation. :) I also still need to come up with 3 wolf proposals. But I'll play around with the time travel for a little bit longer, than get my word count on the other by this weekend. My laptop hasn't been returned, which is the reason for the delay.
And I've got bear orders to work on this weekend also! :) 1 Bear is made, but I just need to embroider the paws. 1 bear is almost whole. :) And 2 are cut out and ready to be sewn. Then I need to make the bonnet and sash for the one, but the other 2 I had to order, so it'll be a couple of weeks before I get the clan plaids from Scotland.
I had wished I could have picked some up when I was in Scotland!
Off to play around with the time travel. Have a glorious Thursday! This is my late night, and I'm afraid yesterday was another madhouse.
