About to start in on the new novel. Feels a bit like standing on top of a cliff trying to gather courage to leap into the roaring sea below, staring at the waves crashing, trying to familiarise myself with them, reminding myself how to swim. But there’s only one thing to do. JUMP!
Michael Cunningham (author of The Hours) says,
“A writer should always feel like he’s in over his head. That’s part of what makes good writing compelling – the sense that as readers we’re in the company of a writer of vast ambitions, who is always trying to do more than he or she is technically capable of.”
Well, that’s me, vast ambitions and in WAY over my head.
Aiming for a thousand words a day and a full draft done by the end of June. Who’s with me?
Love to all,
