I haven’t really had a great deal of development on the writing front these past couple of months, something that I’m very disappointed with. Apart from MoS, I barely had the time, energy and frame of mind to focus on my other writing projects.
But it seems I’m finally getting my groove back. Over the past week or two I managed to get a little bit of fiction written. Notably the 903 words I put in on Buried in two days. I’ve not touched that in a long time, so it felt a little odd but comforting going back to it. There are still plenty of plot holes to fill. I’m just eager to finished the first draft of the manuscript, the last thing I want is to spend another five years completing this (my second) novel.
Other than that, I started a new story, aptly titled Pillow. I love the title, and I love the idea of the story. This would be my first proper children’s book and I’m hoping to have it illustrated as well. What I have in mind is a cross between Wolves in the Walls and Coraline, both Neil Gaiman children’s books. I wrote 909 words on that so far.
As soon as the MoS book is done and released, I will return my attention to the collection ‘Moments’ which I’m getting eager to publish. I know I know, I’ve been saying that for god knows how long! But it’ll happen, trust me. Have some faith. Be patient.
