The plot unfolds

August 26, 2006

I’m on chapter 8 now and the writing is going well. There are a few distractions other than family – bought a camcorder, joined YouTube and have gone movie crazy – it’ll pass.
 
I’m a Gemini – and so these varied crazes come and go. I’m used to it. Writing is my one steady craze. It’s for life I hope, well, at least while I can drag myself to the keyboard..

Even so I am managing between 8 hundred and 1k words each day. Getting up early is the key and priming my subconscious the night before.

My latest book is out this week.  Here it is –

Hardback.

I love being a writer.

Slowly but surely

On chapter 6 now.  Did well last Sunday – over 1500 words. Monday and Tuesday were family days, so no writing.  Today, even though I was pretty tired in the afternoon I managed almost 1k.

 The plot is becoming a little clearer in my mind. It’s amazing how particles of the plot which are chaotic in my head fit together like a jigsaw puzzle when I sit down to write.  I owe it all to my subconscious.

I received my hardback copies of my latest book TAKE MY CHILD by Gwen Madoc (Severn House Publishers Ltd) which comes out at the end of this month in the UK and  November in the USA.  It’s a wonderful feeling to hold a published copy of your own book. This is my tenth but it is still thrilling. It makes me want to work even harder. I wish I could manage to write two books a year.

Goodbye, Marilyn

This is Marilyn, my sister-in-law, who passed away so suddenly two weeks ago, aged 64, leaving her family devastated. Her funeral was yesterday, 26th May.  There was a terrific turn out. Marilyn had innumerable friends and acquaintances who came to say their last goodbyes, even on one of the most dismay days of the month.

She has left such a void in our lives. Nothing will ever be the same again.
