Well, I was going to tell you the name of the new novel, but won't, because after all I am female and it is my prerogative to change my mind at a moment's notice, so just in case I change it regarding the title, you will have to wait. Suffice to say I am delighted with today's progress - 3700 words, plus 1200 which I fitted in yesterday whilst dinner was being prepared for me and we are motoring along quite nicely, thank you very much.
I was a tad distracted for an hour or so with Twitter, but finally, I logged off of everything and applied myself to the task The good thing about having a plan, is plans are made to be broken. Already my main character, Gill, has adopted a history I knew nothing of until this morning and whole events have happened that I had no intention of writing! I do love the creative process. The other thing I love at this relatively initial stage, is creating the characters. It's very difficult to show you, the readers, what they feel and how they look, if I don't know myself. So, I like to paint out their lives, likes, interests, acquaintances, background. Eventually they feel like people I know, even if I did create them! Well, I think I have deserved a break - back soon, Sooz
