Thanks for the insights and personal experiences. I'm pretty mired in my WIP now, it's going well, and the other ideas have quit coming. Now, I'm lying in bed and it's a line for a scene down the road in the WIP that comes up, which is terrific. I still have the deluge, but it's a focused deluge. And yeah, it still is a giddy relief after the four months of pain.

Still, that TV show.... If I were young, hip, and living in L.A., I'd put on a tight blouse and pitch the hell out of it.
