This morning I had the most awesome idea while driving to work. This makes the third idea I've had for sga_genficathon, which is actually a much better idea than the second, and hits on a lot of the same points. (The bonus here is I already have a plot to fit this one). Sadly, it will take a little bit of research, so I can't quite start today (but I'm already bookmarking things). But the words are in my head, the flow and feel of the story and characters are readily apparent, the need to type is like an itch, humming just beneath my skin. This is what the best inspiration feels like to me. An itch that just has to be scratched.
(So, apparently Fic-That-Ate-My-Soul might take a backburner if this keeps up.)
In unrelated news, I woke up this morning with the biggest urge to climb into a hot air balloon and see where the wind takes me. Seeing as how I am a teensy bit acrophobic, this is puzzling. I'm sure it's just a Monday, and this too will pass.
