Scribbled thoughts of a mad woman

New Author blogs about writing

Look at the time

Leave a comment

I can’t believe what the time is!  I’ve nearly finished typing up my second novel.  I am so close to the end.  It was a shock when I glanced to the clock on the screen and found it today is now yesterday’s tomorrow! 

When you’re in the zone….  But it doesn’t get the kids to school!

Writing consumes the brain, a bit like love.  When the story is there you have to get it out.  You wouldn’t stop declaring your love for someone, or stop halfway through making love, because it was bedtime, would you?  When I do have to stop in the middle of a particularly good piece (good as in it’s flowing out like water from a broken tap) I am irritable, irascible. 

But I have stopped at a good point – in so much as I can go to bed and sleep instead of tossing and turning until it is morning and I can get back to the PC!

Goodnight.  Good morning to those in the East.

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2014 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Banished-ebook/dp/B008PGM4TQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361913026&sr=8-1. If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you lied it - or even why not!
