I started a new book last night - writing, not reading. There is so much enthusiasm when starting something new. You get to know the characters, invent or research the setting, work out the plot lines - it's all so much fun. Then you have to get down to the hard work of just writing. And it is work. But it's all good.
Anyway, I finished all my edits for my books from Cerridwen Press and all the stuff that goes along with that (cover art ideas, blurbs, etc.) so now I wait - and promote - and find a new project to work on. I've been in edit mode for so long - for myself and others - I haven't written much of anything. But that is what I plan to do the rest of this week. But today is too beautiful to sit in my chair and type so first I'm going for a long walk with my hubby. After he leaves for work this afternoon, I will also get to work.
Today's teaser: The weather is turning cooler, leaves are changing colors. This is the time of year for football games, apple cider and scary monsters lurking in the shadows. In the manner of Shelley (author of Frankenstein), you have to create a new monster - but one with a streak of good. What does your monster look like? What is his or her quirk? What happens when s/he follows the good side instead of the nasty? And no fair copying "Monster, Inc."
