It continues…

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog-got some time on my hands today and I said to myself, ‘why not’, so here goes.

The book is coming along…I got stuck a couple of weeks ago, but I unstuck myself with a neat trick of writing around the ‘main event/climax’ of the book-that chapter came flying out of my hands like magic in about a couple of hours… all 2954 words of it :).  I am proud, I must say that :D.

I am presently up to about 22 pages-not a lot compared to someone like Steven King (the master himself)- but good enough for someone who schedules it for the free time I have after my twice-weekly aqua-aerobics class. Its monumental! Of course I could write more, but if you ask anyone who writes, you will know that sometimes time on your hands is not all that’s important for writing, but the mood and setting and that one thing that makes the space comfortable.

I read an article once about the queer practices of writers the special ‘writing hats’, the special pen, paper, ink, typewriter everything that they need to make the space just ‘right’. Well for me, I need a laptop, a comfortable seat and background noise-so, on my bed with some music playing; at my table with the television on low, will suit me just fine. I found out a while ago I can’t write at my desktop, or at most desktops in fact don’t ask me why it’s just strange. So keep your finger’s crossed for me and hope that I will have more time as well as be in the right mood and inspired all at the same time!

I won’t tell you what the darn thing is about just yet so don’t ask. There is a lot  more pages, a lot more chapters to go, so here I go once again-merrily on my way to writing another 22(lets hope more) pages. 😀
