Now I am at this point in the novel when I have to make a decision about the death of a character, and possibly two.
I have now passed the 50,000 words, and I more or less know where I am going, even though I still need to decide on quite a few essential scenes. I am still worrying about the deadline. My take onb things is, it's not because you're writing a book that you have to stop living your life.
This weekend, I was very busy helping my boyfriend and my sister with their stall at the Village Green event in Southend-on-Sea. It was a very cold, gorgeous day which turned out to be very positive for eveyone. Their work had received a lot of interest and we have made a few contacts which I hope will be fruitful. We now have a lot of ideas for what's to follow, and we hope to be able to have a stall at various events in the near future... This and the book will most definitely keep me busy until at least January. I have been lucky as my freelance editorial work has been slowing down recently and I haven't looked for any more opportunities... The book and Mattartpix are now taking priority! I shall probably have to think about earning a bit more money in January, but this is too boring to even contemplate... I just have to consider myself lucky I have the opportunity to give 90% of my time to what I like the most in the world...
I think therefore I write.
