Cornbread and Porcupines

I've never been very good at titles, but that one sure caught your attention, didn't it?

Surprise, surprise! Since when have I had 16 followers? It took about 8 months, but now I have 16 followers! I'm amazed I interest that many people. Thanks people. I'll try to continue entertaining all of you.

In other news, I am doing a poor job at being a writer. And no, it's not just because I haven't done much NaNo-ing, or because I've been letting my inner fan-girl get the better of me. (No, I was not one of the many obsessed with the new Harry Potter movie, but I was one of those who flipped out about the latest My Chemical Romance video. And I may post a link to my artistic analysis of it on my tumblr once I get around to writing it.) No, I am a bad writer because last night I dreamt about my novel, and I can't remember it.

That should have been a good sign. To dream about a writer's novel in midst of working on it is a welcome experience. Especially since I dreamed the answer to my novel. I've been stuck, and in my dream I figured out how to kick it off into awesome-ness. The weird thing was, I didn't dream I was in it. I dreamt I was figuring it out, and it was so perfect. It gave a perfect explanation to a plot hole, and it kicked up the interest level.

Lo and behold, I can't remember. The only thing I can remember is the plot hole filler, but because I can't remember what the extra scene is that I would have to add, it opens up even more potential plot holes. Needless to say, I'll be wracking my brain and my subconscious for the answer to return. And I'll be tearing the beginning of this novel apart until I figure it out.

Wish me luck!
