Happy Friday, everyone! Just a quick update post, as my week has been thrown into slight disarray by a snot monster who has decided to take up residence in my sinuses. Blegh! Could be worse, though, I know that.
Streaming eyes and the fact that the front of my face feels as though it’s about to explode off into the ether means that I’ve not been able to sit at a computer for long these past few days, so that meant no Wednesday Wander or Thursday Doors, as well as no popping round to visit other blogs as often as I like to do. I made the (huge) mistake of deciding to still go on a school trip on Wednesday, as I was feeling ‘a bit better.’ Hahahahahahahahaha. I was not. So, while wandering around an Anglo-Saxon village would have been right up my alley most days, all I could think about was when we were going to get back on the coach and go home.
Anyway. Enough wingeing about my cold. Like I say, it could be worse. So, in terms of actual writing, here’s what’s been happening:
A Thousand Rooms is in the final stages of formatting, and I’m hoping to have a cover design to reveal to you all soon. Also, if any of you lovely people would be happy to have me come over for a visit and talk about the book, I’d love to (and would be happy to return the favour). Let me know 🙂
Other than that, another book idea that’s been on the back burner for a while has surged to the forefront, with an opening scene (maybe the opening scene) playing itself over and over in my mind. The story is intriguing me, and I can see the layers forming, each character becoming more complex. So I guess it’s time to start writing it down…
Under Stone, my fourth Ambeth book, is also knocking at the doors of my subconscious, demanding I pay it some attention. It was already written, but some slight adjustments I made in the first three books need to be added and played out in this fourth book, so there’s a bit of structural work to do. How do I know it’s been knocking? There’s a piece of music I associate with writing the Ambeth books, and it’s been playing in my head this past week or so (it’s getting quite crowded in there now, what with the other book and the snot monster and life in general and now music – maybe that’s why I have a cold).
But the weekend now beckons, and hopefully a chance to rest and get back to health. Plus do some writing, of course…
