I've finally reopened my fic file. Of course, after such a long vacation from writing, that means I'm spending tonight reading over all 82,000+ words and making some small edits. It's really the only way I can get myself back into the flow of the story. It's amazing how after working on this thing for almost a year, I can still find typos and errors and just turns of phrase that don't work... extraneous adjectives and imprecise wording. On the other hand, I can also still find those turns of phrase and bits of dialog that make me smile and think, wow, I actually wrote that!

I'd start brewing some coffee, but at night I find it's just as likely to put me into a coma as keep me awake.
