I’m in one of those in-between moods today, not up, not down, not particularly ebullient (that’s a great word, isn’t it? Even if you don’t know it, you can figure it out, the way that b-u sound bubbles out of the middle like energetic champagne), not particularly morose.
Today I just…am.
Even keel. Coffee and computer. Onward and…outward?
Sometimes I think this is an ideal mood for writing, not having much of a mood. There’s no tone to match in the work, the tone finds itself.

More on that tomorrow.
And when editing, it usually becomes the thing that spreads to fill the size of the container. But so many projects lined up hopefully in my hard drive, waiting for their tiny spark of life.
Shh. Don’t tell them that some day they, too, will be edited.
So I’m off to conquer worlds of my own making, in various stages of construction. Hmm.
Maybe that’s just a hint of ebullience.
