My mind is above a joke lately.
I am getting so many new ideas for writing and art projects that it is affecting productivity in the past few weeks!
I have no idea what has happened to my brain, but today alone I have written down synopsises of nine new stories and I have too many ideas for artwork too!
But one thing is clear; I am becoming predominantly a science fiction and dark fantasy writer; if there is such a thing as dark science fiction, well I think I am that too!
I have only managed to write plans down in the past few weeks, because of intense pain and medical emergencies – the laboratories seem late in the results, I only hope there isn’t another laboratory accident as that would be the fourth one in the last five years, where I had have to have tests redone!
I have never known a hospital that is so accident prone!
Sitting at a desk is agony and the sofa is not that good either, but it is much better than the dining chair or office swivel chair.
I am trying to force myself to work on my writing and this is scaring Paul, because I am pushing myself a lot and I have been near collapse.
I am sedentary and yet I still can’t cope? I don’t get it, I don’ know why the pain is getting so bad, but all I know is, it is getting worse every few days!
One of the stories came to me at 3:30am on Tuesday; a Christmas fantasy in Christmas tradition and that took me two hours to write by hand, the next day my hand was swollen.
I wrote three chapters since to that project, but I wouldn’t call it hard work, because the chapters are small for me.
Usually I’d write 3k words in a day towards an interesting subject, this Christmas story is only around 1k at the moment, Paul reckons it looks like it could be a children’s book the way I am writing it, as it is very child friendly so far.
I love the story, but I am worried about how long it should be if it is deemed to be a children’s book? I don’t know… I am not known for writing specifically for children!
Paul thinks it could be a slightly larger than average children’s picture book, because he would like to see a lot of pictures in this story – I am uncertain personally.
I know the story has the potential to be very popular, but I am not confident on how to market this.
Anyway, thank you for reading and if I don’t post before then, have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
