Last night I worked on the poem that's grown out of the "on the spot" literary contest. I also tweaked one of my Liberty Hall flashes. I was looking over "The Gift," and saw a critical place where something in my head was not on the page. I'm hoping this helps with motivation.
Regarding last year's novel-planning based on The Gift.... I'm planning a complete overhaul. I'm not planning changes to the key personal relationships (although that could happen), but the setting, antagonists, and the secondary characters are all being changes. I have some ideas, but need to do research. My plan is to let the story percolate while I revise my shorter pieces.
