I Have A Blog?


I haven't been blogging lately, but it's okay because I've been writing lots and lots! The transition from FINISHING A BOOK to STARTING A NEW BOOK is always hard. Because writing a book is always hard. And my immediate feelings after finishing a book are pretty much: I have to do that all AGAIN?

Starting a new book feels impossible-- all that work, all those hours in the old world, and now I have to start from scratch??

It takes a while to knock that impossible down to a "well, I should at least try..."

And then all it takes is a good idea, and you're all, "THIS IS THE BEST STORY EVER!"

(Unless you can't decide between five ideas, because they're all 'the best story ever'. Then things get a little tricky.)

But today I'm focusing on one idea, the one I'm currently working on. I'm still getting a feel for it, so I thought I'd try something my friend Jade has done and collect some visual inspiration.

The story I'm working on is called The Apocalypse of Holo Hathaway. This is what it's about:


And now I'm off to write!
