I was going in to say goodnight to my boy, when I noticed he was already asleep. I gave him a kiss goodnight and said 'I love you' - I kinda chuckled cause if he was awake I wouldn't have been able to finish my sentence. You see, my son is a Grade A talker. He can chat w the best of them, often interrupting cause he is so excited about what he is chatting about.
Like a bolt, it hit me. What about a character that interrupts the entire time. My relaxing weekend turned into multiple 3 am nights trying to get pen to paper as quickly as possible before like most creative ideas, it blows away in the wind. I've learned in the past if you say to yourself - 'that's a good idea, i gotta remember that' It's as good as gone. You gotta strike while the iron is hot.
