It has been a while, but I am finally back with a new ROW80 update.
There have been a lot of crazy changes going on in recent weeks, and to be honest with you all, I just pure forgot about the check-in each time. I remembered but always a day two too late. By which time I just said, oh well, I’ll give a longer update next time around. Then I go and forget that check in aswell.
I have now started my new novel. Title was set a long time ago. Par for the Course. I am really excited about this novel, and do not want to give too much away at this point in time, but it is a much more character driven piece and focuses around two central characters and builds up to an electric final chapter / scene.
It has been slow going this week, but after so many months out editing, I expected to have to warm up a little bit.
As you can see I was below my standard target every day, but am still just testing the water. I have the central plot firmly in my mind now, and after a conversation with one of my most trusted friends, the fabulous L M Stull, my trepidation for the project has gone away and I am left with nothing but the limits of my imagination.
How is the round going for all of you? I have been very bad at blog reading recently, and I promise to get back to it this weekend.
The other target I set myself at the start of this round was to read more. I have happily ben able to read every day this year and have 4 books finished already. I am not the quickest of readers, I guess an average reader in terms of speed.
I am now reading Dracula, a rather lengthy novel, but I will not rush it. I am loving it until now, and despite having read it years ago, when I was around 10 or 11, I cannot remember much of the novel.It is more the Gary Oldman representation that sticks in my mind.
