Good morning, Singapore!


ImageIt’s 6:30 a.m. on a Saturday.  Why am I up at dawn?  I’m squeezing in a morning run before 90 degree heat coupled with 90% humidity strikes here on the equatorial tropical island concrete jungle of Singapore. I get some of my best inspirations for thickening plot, fleshing out characters, and enhancing settings while I’m running and NOT thinking about my novel.  Not kidding, I often stop several times to write my random thoughts in my notepad app.  What do you do to get your creative juices running?
