The Book of Thoth is stuck in 2011... I am going through the motions but am growing impatient. I need to get my character out of the present as soon as possible and send him back to 1924. I am reading the background story I wrote in January and wonder how on earth I have managed to make things that complicated. I need to keep track of the story and characters' actions and behaviour...
I had given myself December 2011 as a deadline for the manuscript of this second novel, but now, I genuinely do not think this is going to be possible. I have a lot of research to do still and it looks like only Draft 1 might be finished by December, with a lot of re-writing to do early 2012.
I am thinking about getting a kitten to keep me company on the tortuous path to the end of my novel... He or She could give me some feline pieces of advice or wisdom. After all, cats were sacred animals in ancient Egypt, weren't they?
Here is a little link to a profile of Bastet, the cat goddess and "Devouring Lady": http://inanna.virtualave.net/bastet.html
A very attractive, interesting character...
I think therefore I write.
