Grey's Anatomy, Insomnia and Plotting for Dummies

Was I the only one screaming, "NO, IZZY!!!!" at the TV last night? By the last five minutes, I was watching from the kitchen, hands pressed to my face. What is going to happen? To Denny and to her career, and then she drags George into it?? And then BURKE??

16 more hours....must tape 24, though I'm mad at it.

I've already been awake for an hour, still not feeling myself, knowing I have to go to school for those three parent conferences (though I don't know if they're today or not.) My kids are good, in any case. But I sure would like a good night's sleep for a switch.

I'm almost done with the first scene in Hot Shot (I know, I was going to finish it Friday...I have never had more people in and out of my house than I have this week...argh!). Meanwhile, I'm playing with the synopsis for Alex's story, just to get it out of my head. I'm actually plotting the romance first. (I may be slow, but not stupid. Okay, maybe a little.) But I'm not that great at plotting. So I've got my internal conflict. I've got my set-up. Then I was thinking three external events that impact the internal conflict? Does that make sense? Would those be the turning points? And when you plot, do you have something pull them apart, but something else bring them together, under the umbrella of those turning points?

Speak slowly and use small words - this is new to me ;)

I screamed, my hubby screamed... And then we saw Burke. I can't wait for tonight!
