After over two months of writer's block, my brain has started functioning again and I have been desperate to make progress on The Right Place. This novel is really proving particularly difficult to write, and I sometimes lose faith in it, only hoping that I could just drop it and move onto the fourth one, which I think will be much fun to work on.
But "NO", I tell myself, "DO NOT GIVE UP, NOT NOW!"
And I know I won't, because I have invested so much time (and, if I am honest, money) into this that I owe it to myself to actually finish it and somehow get it published.
So my forthcoming blogs will not be wordy - I keep words for my novel!
Here are pictures taken on two separate walks. These walks are necessary for me to find an inner balance between my pessimistic nature and the need to make oneself believe that one's work is not in vain... Something not quite so easy when we look into our present and immediate future...
The Right Place, draft 1: 13,792 words so far.
There are many places in Dorset that have some kind of ancestral beauty, an edgy, vaguely eerie tranquillity...
Some of the paths around the Hardy monument do have that very quality.
I think therefore I write.
