Waking Up

For the first time in probably 7 or 8 years, I've started a new story.  It'll be the first one I've ever tried writing directly on the computer.  I used to write on legal pads with a pen.  I'd read about other writers producing in that fashion, and promptly aped them, thinking there must be something special about it.  So far, writing on the computer feels miles better.  I tend to edit as I write, so this seems to make more sense for me.

After not having produced any original work in so long, it feels like there's another heart beating again.

I've had this idea stuck in my head for a while.  It's different from the kind of story I've mostly written before.  It's changed my approach a little too.  I'm going to be as patient as possible and see what this yields.
