I haven't been blogging so much this year. There's a good reason for it too: I'm halfway through the 1st draft of my next book! Yay! Its coming along slowly, I started in December and writers block got in the way most of the winter. Or maybe I just needed a break. Since then I've been scrawling away (literally) and I've got about 50 thousand words down on the first draft. About 40% through my outline, though I'm sure I'll end up cutting a lot of it later.
What's it about? Well ...
I'm rewriting this blog as a memoir, from scratch. Not sure exactly where it starts. Maybe when I quit my job in Mexico in 2008 to go travelling and somehow found myself moving to London. That was when I discovered healing, astrology and eventually, psychic development. I'm thinking back to the early days: what it was like to get the first impressions, to wonder if I was imagining things or if I was really getting signs. Its been 4-5 years and so much has happened. So many interesting people along the way.
Fingers crossed I'll be done with this first draft in the next month or two and then I can put it down for a while. I've been wanting to write a fiction story with a supernatural slant, and that interlude could be a good time to do it. I'm still thinking about the Flower Fairy I dreamt up last year (see here).
Here's my 1st draft: handwritten to get past the writer's block =)
