I can’t complain about 2012: writing progressed well after the summer vacation, and new ideas were in abundance. Editing was slow, and, as is usual, shorter pieces took time to mull over and eventually post! Building the platform is an important part of a “writer in learning”’s life… The characters have also evolved in the right direction, their relationships becoming clearer, and perhaps more distinctive too: but I know that there is something still missing in all three strands of work, and for the Page, this knowledge is not without frustration after three rewrites! So goes the inspiration.
Still this winter break was a complete write-off: not much work in three weeks! And I feel almost guilty for it, ignoring my lovely characters for so long… One of them, I won’t tell who just yet, is very cross. Her anger is understandable, being left in a precarious position, as it were, between worlds. From this point onward the plot gets more hectic, so she should take it easy for now: what follows shortly won’t be restful!
And, yes, I have set myself some targets: finish the novel by end November 2013! It will be about 100k long in the final version. I still don’t know if this will be published at all, in any form, or just sit on the blog… Does it matter? I will then continue with the other pieces, long term stuff still immature. Peace. And Happy New Year to my readers and followers!
