At last, I started the second part of The Book of Thoth yesterday afternoon, albeit very, very slowly... The spell has been broken and one month later, I now need to get back into it inside my head... This is why Part 1 had gone so well: I had been spending about a month or so planning the book, typing up the background story, defining the characters, even drawing a little map of the estate.
So when I started on the actual writing, my head was full of the book, with several scenes already playing in my mind.
I can only write while "emerged" in my story. I cannot do one hour here and there, I cannot be doing something else and then get onto the book and write 1,000 in one go before returning to something else. I need complete silence, complete peace of mind, I need my head to be empty of everything else... This is not easy to achieve, especially as I have been very busy doing a multitude of other things...
I have also been slacking as far as I Am a Muse is concerned. I need to start sending the MSS to some more literary agents, but my ink cartridge is almost empty and I can only buy it online... Which I keep postponing all the time. I wish more of those agencies would accept electronic files instead of requiring printed documents... It's the bloody 21st century after all!
I think therefore I write.
