…is what the Mancreature exclaimed when I told him that I had started another novel.
You can’t blame the poor man for being so worried – he recalls November, and the madness it brought with it. He was ignored for almost an entire month. I fed him, and occasionally grunted a response – but he didn’t get much more than that. So, when I told him last week that I had a new novel in the works his groans were understandable. Of course, I soon alleviated his fears by explaining that there would be no ‘I’ve still got 35,000 words to write!’ every time he asks me for something.
Clearly, you’ve guessed that I have a new novel in the works, right? It’s got a working title of ‘An Unholy Betrayal’ (Thanks to Rebecca Clare Smith) and it’s High Fantasy – because, really, is there any other kind of book? (Of course there is, I just can’t write any other kind. ) This is it in one sentence:
The Guild Master has found the weapon he needs to destroy the world, only the ancient order of Holy Assassins can stop him, but can Shadow’s Mistress and her new companion resurrect the Holy Assassins in time to save the love of her life?
It totally sounds amazing, right? Right.
So far I’ve got most of it all planned out, and the characters have some depth to them, and I have a map. Oh, and about 8,000 words down. It’s been a good week. My #WIP500 count has steadily risen in the last five days or so, and I’ve started writing my 750 Words again, which is brilliant for mind dumps.
The Creative Writing thing I’m doing with The Art Stop is also going really well, we’re going to make a recording of monologues which we shall write in the next few weeks. It’s going to be made all fancy with music and what nots, and played at the International Womens Day conference in March – Exciting stuff!
That’s what’s going on with me – now tell me about you!
