New Characters Stop Sleep!

Yesterday, I started writing chapter two of my mystery novel for young adults (yes, it's official!) and that led to a rather restless night.  My two new characters who surface in chapter two played havoc with my sleep.  They obviously were excited at their forthcoming arrival on the page and oblivious to the time.  I even made a few notes just before dropping off, thinking that would keep them quiet for a while but no, throughout the early hours, they squatted in that part of my brain, you know the part that never sleeps!

So today I will get them out and get to know them better and that should I hope keep them quiet while I get on with my other life tasks of the day.  I will of course be writing down the bones of the story...
