The last few months (okay, the whole year … the last three years) have been annoying writing-wise. It’s harder and harder to scratch out the headspace required to get a decent chunk of writing on the screen. Headspace? Yep. That’s where the story is held, in my brain with random notes in a notebook. If I don’t have the headspace for the story it can’t grow and worse, I lose track of what everyone is doing and where they’re going.
I’m nearly at 52k with a clear idea of where this is going for the next chapter. By the end of the next chapter I’ll know what comes next, and so on. Fingers crossed!
It’s a step-by-step process for me usually.
About a chapter ago, I thought I knew who was pulling the strings on this one, but then I met her and I was wrong. Funtimes. 🙂
No idea who it is now, so I’m quite excited to see how much the woman I met really knows.
In other news, It’s Crime Time, so if you’ve always wanted to take an in-person class in crime writing – then hop to it. Introduction to Crime Writing is taught at Wellington High School via CEC. I am your fun tutor and I come bearing gifts. 🙂
Currently, the wonderful Margot Kinberg and I are working on a rather exciting project to do with crime. More to come at a later date.
We have my writing group back in the shop today. That’ll be fun. Have they done their homework? Who knows? I was going to and got sidetracked by a zillion things. I may find time to whip something descriptive up this morning though. 🙂
It’s sunny. I am looking forward to enjoying the sun on the walk to the bookshop.
As always, this writer is fueled by coffee and sales don’t support such a habit.
Buy me a coffee?
Take care out there!

Isn’t it funny how life gets in the way of writing? It does me, too. I’m glad your writer’s group’s meeting today. That must be fun. I’m excited about our criminal project, too!
I can’t wait. Our project is not far from my mind these days!!
