I don't know about you, but a new year doesn't really make any difference to me... I carry on on my path regardless...
But let's succumb to the fashion and look at the year ahead:
Yep, since finishing my first novel I Am a Muse in late December 2010, I have been sending the manuscript off to agents and a few indie publishers. Still nothing...
I have also worked on my second novel, The Book of Thoth, and the word count so far is at 74,000 words... and I am still far from the ending... This one will probably require up to four drafts - I Am a Muse had three and I need to work on it again before publishing it, a few decisions to make regarding a scene... - and will not be finished until December 2012 if I am lucky... I am having a lot of fun writing it, it is rather exciting!
The very first buds of a third novel - at the moment, it is called Anti - have blossomed in my head...
I am hoping to self-publish I Am a Muse... Watch this space! It will take a while, as I have a lot of (freelance) work in the forthcoming weeks and will have very little time to do my research... The thing is to be terribly ORGANISED.
Also, stay put for some more cultural commentary: books, TV, art, films, music ... It will all be here! Because without them, life wouldn't be worth living.
And I am not saying this lightly.
I think therefore I write.
