Well, that was a productive few days.
Just taken Wolfish from 5,000 to 10,000 in three days.
I'm thoroughly loving this one. It's got a real fairytale quality to it, with dark and twisted edges.
I'm writing that in the mornings and editing Creeper's in the afternoons. The MS for Creeper's Cottage is about 390 pages and I'm over halfway already. The first half of the novel is not problematic, but I know there's a rewrite up ahead, which turns me into a lazy bugger.
It's nice to be enjoying writing so much again.
I find it interesting that ancient fairytales can be retold so many times, never ceasing to throw up new meaning or hidden possibilities. Perhaps that is why they have endured 5,000 years.
