Just thought I'd take a second to let you all know about the new project that I am about to embark on - quite literally as soon as I've posted this and made a cup of tea.
It's the new book that I talked about the other day.
I've decided on the voice that I want to use to tell the story, I've come up with what I want to happen along the way and I know where I have to be in the end. It's quite fluid (one of my boss's favourite words for not set in stone) and I am sure that I'll come up with things as the characters develop but I'm ready to go I think.
I've set myself a realistic target of what I can certainly achieve on even a bad week and hopefully I will exceed that target sometimes which means that the whole thing will come along much quicker. The deadline that I have set myself for the first draft to be finished is one year from today. It will actually be the second draft I suppose because as most of you know I write with the pink pen on real paper before committing it to the electronic page. I've decided that I'm going to write and transfer on a regular basis because that's not what I did with BTL and that meant a lot of too-ing and fro-ing at one stage so I'm hoping to eliminate it this time. Plus I understand that most professionals write and edit as they're going along which is what I will be doing essentially. And if it's good enough for those that make their living doing this it's good enough for me.
Anyway that was it really - just wanted to mark this momentous occasion and announce it to the world.
I have a brand new untouched pad to start the epic on and the pink pen is primed and ready so here we go.
Once I've made a cuppa of course - that goes without saying.
Just one last thing. The working tital for this project is CT
