I am currently working on my first novel. It is called I am a Muse. I found the title before I had anything else, and it started its young life as an idea for a short story. Then I thought about it again and again and, last winter, an idea took shape in my head and stuck with me. I have been developing that idea ever since, but started real work on it only in June of this year. About a month ago, I started typing, without knowing where I was going ... The story and the characters are taking shape before my very eyes, names are emerging from the shadows of the page ...
So far, I have managed to sneak in one scene from real life, a cat called Dummy, a Crimson Lady, a club night called The Pleasure Gardens, an isolated Victorian house by the sea, some Japanese girls with multicoloured hair and nails, a dead artist, a lost muse, a willow tree and Barry Lyndon ...
I have also finished editing a collection of texts (I would hesitate to call them poems) and I am working with an artist to create some illustrations based on those texts.
I think therefore I write.
