Sorry for the
delay slackness. The holiday season and school holidays have sucked my will to live, let alone write or blog. Getting slowly back to it. Current plan is:
- Finish the short(ish) story that will quite possibly define the future course of the novel’s subsequent rewrites
- Finish a couple of blog posts I’ve been marinating for a few weeks
- Finish editing the story and post it for comment / condemnation
- Start in earnest on the second draft, taking into account the very helpful feedback provided by John and Dalibor
So yeah, plan of sorts.
Until step 1 gets completed, here’s someone else’s hard work, a fascinating list (well, it IS from Buzzfeed) about writing “The Other”. Since my novel is predicated on the idea of the other, it provides some interesting thought-food for me.
Hopefully post again soon.
