It’s that time again.
12.05am on the first of November, and it’s time to write another novel. Once again, a fantasy novel, but this time set in another world, traditional fantasy, a setting that mixes fantasy with a culture reminiscent of Tudor England (more or less.) It follows the story of a girl come to court at a time of change and chaos: the Moon Queen dying, and the Sun King already preparing to select his new bride – in fact “The Sun King’s Bride” is the present title.
I would like to add that there’ll be regular blog updates on my progress, but who are we kidding? This is the first entry since June, and despite (relatively) good intentions, I’m not too sure there’ll be any more anytime soon. I’m signed up to the NaNoWriMo website, so progress can probably be viewed there, but once again, I don’t really picture myself adding a lot of corroborating evidence or interesting information.
In other news: not too much. Every Day Fiction are the generous publishers now of two of my stories, and appear to be considering two more. Excellent site – very astute editors, fine taste in short literature…
Oh, well, let the writing begin…..
