Eureka! or when an idea takes about three decades to claw to the surface...

Today was a good day. One of those rare epiphany moments that can suddenly take a ten thousand year timeline and tweak something that I first thought of as a kid, something that's always been there in a small way...and blow everything wide open.

One of those causes kingdoms to rise and fall things, planets get ripped apart kind of things. Excited. And best of all fits perfectly into my WIP, which already contains that first moment when it all begins.

Love days like today.
