I've taken a well-earned break from my writing this evening to catch up on my blogging activities.
I've not visited my favourite blogs or posted a decent post in weeks...or so it seems. And in all honesty, I've not missed it over much; when the writing fog descends I welcome it and let myself get lost in it. But. To quote Jack Torrence from The Shining: All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Speaking of which, check out the Typewriter Scene from The Shining on YouTube. That's been me over the last few weeks. Woebetide anyone who disturbs my flow!
And exactly how is Bathory coming along?
But it is coming along.
It's helped that school is now out for summer. In theory I have five weeks - I repeat five weeks - to concentrate on my novel. In practise: I am taxi driver to a seventeen year old daughter who wants taking to BBQ's, sleepovers, shopping expeditions and parties; I have major renovations going on in my living room: walls coming down, plaster going up, and decorating in progress. My writing space has been reduced to approximately two foot by one foot of space on the kitchen table. The rest of the table is piled high with stuff from the room being knocked about: hundreds of CDs, thousands of DVDs, and millions of books! Anybody walking into the kitchen can't actually see me behind the heaps of 'stuff'!
Despite all that, I am still writing. And enjoying it!
PS. Today is the witches festival of Lammas.
Have a good one!
