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!


  1. Maybe that's why so many writers decide to writer trilogies. Sure beats creating a bunch of new characters. :D

    Love the pictures.

  2. AHHHH!!!! Those pictures are AH-MAZING!!! So excited for this book!

  3. Good to hear from you Kat and best wishes with the idea development.

  4. Love these visual inspirations! Takes your breath away. (Hugs)Indigo

  5. Oooooo, awesome and inspirational photos! Those got my juices flowing and I don't have a single solitary writerly idea in my grandmotherly head right now. Good luck!

    Just popping back in to see what's new and to say, have a wonderful Weekend.

  6. The pictures are pretty cool, and you aren't the only one who's been lagging behind in their blogging. I'm still catching up. Just popped over to comment, on the epicness of those photos and to say I gave you an award over at my blog, so yeah. Have a great day!

  7. Hi, Kat! I'm a new follower and love your blog. Good luck with tackling that new writing project!

    You have an awesome blog here, so I'm passing along the Leibster Blog Award to you. Details are on my blog :).

  8. Me again, just saying hi and checking to see how you're doing.

    Have a great Sunday!

  9. Sounds cool! I'm thinking of starting a new novel too, just have to decide which idea to follow. Good luck!
