Writing process

Writers gotta write

Daylight saving started on the weekend.  I love it, but it takes a week to get used to.  Suddenly it’s midnight and you’re not in bed, even though you have to get up at six to get ready for work.

 To make matters worse, I wake up this morning at five.  Urgh.  I know from experience if I go back to sleep now, I’ll sleep through the alarm.

There’s a whole lot of must-do’s swirling around in my head.  Work is so busy right now.  I have reports to complete, figures to analyse, a presentation to write. Outside of that, there’s the course notes I need to finish for the course we are running next month.  Not to mention, a novel to write.  What with work and the course notes, I haven’t touched latest story for three weeks.  I’m feeling ultra-guilty.

Then, into my head pops a brand new story idea.  I like it.  No, I love it.

I crawl out of bed and turn on the computer.

Guess which one I work on.

had to laugh at your description of your love of your new shiny vs the old one! What book are you working on now?

Ah, yes. New shiny always tempts.

We’re currently working on a fantasy. We don’t know how it will go, but we offered our agent four stories, and that was the one she thought the most promising right now. (The other three were all science fiction, so not sure what this means.) We’ll see how it goes when we present the finished story to her. 🙂
