I am busy and I bet you cannot guess what it is that is keeping me on my toes – yes, it is writing.
After presenting what I am told is a sucessful workshop for aspiring writers, I have been attacked by characters all wanting a role in my next novel. I enjoyed the event and met interesting authors of the future.
I started on the sequel to Maggie’s Child, and it has a title; Maggie’s Men. A count up of coins for Mother bought about a scene, and off I went with an opening character I had not planned on using.
While the ladies in the workshop were working on an exercise I created for them, they set a scene in my mind and a Victorian teacher popped into my brain. This has led to a rough plan of a possible novel.
Amazing where inspiration comes from – where do you gather yours? What is your current project?
