New Book Idea, New Neighbors

Thrilled to say that I’ve come up with an idea for a new book and I’m struck by how it’s like having neighbors move in next door: I can hear them through the walls, characters behind the conscious/subconscious barrier, rattling around. I’m not quite sure who they are or what makes them tick, what their plans are, but I’m thrilled that they’re there. I’m enlivened by them, curious, appreciative. Are those children I hear? Who is arriving, what is the conflict, what is their journey? That anxiety-producing empty space is being filled now, the community is being built, and I’m no longer alone. Welcome! (Now the question is, how to be invited in next door!)
