It's time to wake up

This post has been bouncing around my head for a few days now, but I'm only just now sitting down to write it. Because I'm procrastinating from writing. But I think this is a good wake up exercise, both for me, and my character.

Elaine? Elaine, it's time to wake up. I know, I know, you've been asleep since 2010. I'm really sorry it's been so long. I've had a little person running around that's been taking a lot of energy, both physical and mental, and I knew it would take a lot of motivation for me to come back to you and your story. But something has happened, something big, that gave me the motivation I need to do one more revision on your story. I won't be doing all the changes I'd thought I'd need to at one point, at least not yet, but there will be more. There will be more of Phillip, and Catherine, and more of you, of course. And hopefully more of companion stories to yours.

A lot has happened since we last spoke. There's a thing called Pinterest now. I won't bore you with the details, but it has allowed me to focus on what you look like. I now picture you as Bryce Dallas Howard in "The Village." I picture Catherine as Amanda Seyfried in "Red Riding Hood." I have some lovely images of the places you frequent. I don't know if this will help me when writing you, but it can't hurt, and it allowed me to at least think of you while not actively writing.

That's all for now. In a moment, I'll go open your file, save under a new number, put on "Track changes." And I'll gently shake your shoulder and say one more time:

It's time to wake up.
