As you can see, I have been experimenting with my blog today. Not sure I like it, but I’ll persist. Still some ‘minor’ issues to iron out like how to get my feather on the letter head etc. And I’m not sure about the columns on either side, makes it a bit cluttered.
Today has been a great writing day. I’ve now written almost 6,000 words so I’m very happy with how it’s all going. The more I write, the more I am getting inside my main character’s head. She has so much to tell me. I’m also learning a lot about her family background, and how her whole family is responding to something really bad that happened to them recently (in the story of course).
I so love this stage in a project where so many new things are unfolding all the time. Still lots more to find out. Book One is just about plotted – and now I’m moving on to books 2 and 3.
After writing many words this morning, I spent the afternoon and evening with Queensland writerly buddy, Sheryl Gwyther. We had lots of fun brainstorming the projects we are both working on and talking about lots of other writerly things.
I’d recommend to any writer, finding a good writing buddy who you can bounce your ideas off. It’s amazing how productive it can be – and great for allowing you to discover holes in your story.
Seeing as we were out and about this evening, I thought I’d include some photos of the sights of Brisbane at night.
