After the posting frenzy that the Sunlounger extravaganza instigated, you may have noticed that things have slowed down somewhat. I suspect it is a welcome break from my witterings. Given school is about to kick out here, you're probably good for another six weeks too.
I'm spending the summer thinking about something new. I'm plotting, researching, writing character sketches and generally taking the time to write around it, getting to know it. This is new for me. I usually have a premise and then write hundreds of snippets of dialogue, until the story emerges. That hasn't really been working for me recently, so a new approach was required. I posted here about how ideas need to have time to simmer and develop, how they cannot be expected to be perfect from the word pop. Because they cannot be. It is too much to ask of something so newborn and fragile.
So I'm plotting and nurturing this summer, in the hope to have something to throw myself into. What are you up to?
