I'm pretty sure. Last night and early this morning before I went to bed, I played around with my new characters. I'd tried writing them as a short contemporary and something felt like it was missing. You may remember a while back I tried to start a suspense but kept writing myself in circles. Again, something was missing.
Early this morning, I thought I'd try to combine the elements of both. As I sat writing about my new hero in the suspense situation, it felt right. I got some great ideas and was able to write myself OUT of that circular route I had before. That gut feeling I've learned to trust told me I've finally found the right direction. Now I just have to remember how to write a suspense since it's been a year and 10 months since I worked on one!
