N is for Nothing...to it.
Okay, so you're deep in your WIP, really concentrating. It's a good night for working. But then your significant other walks in, sees the furrow of your brow, and inquires. You try to explain your level of concentration. You've been building scenes, structuring plots, researching facts, and lastly, character building. He glazes over, stammers for something to say. A moment of silence passes and you think you'll get thirty more minutes of time to write, but then, he says the funniest thing ever. "Wow, this whole writing thing's kind of involved huh. I always thought there was nothing to it." Suddenly I'm inspired to write in a new character. One that seems habitually lost.
