I've been reminded that I haven't been blogging here. Part of that is because I have another blog (http://carolineleavittville.blogspot.com/) but the other part is because I've SOLD MY 9th NOVEL!!! Yes, I'm celebrating, yes I am deliriously happy and excited, but I've also learned that I am happiest when I am working so I've started a new novel.
I know vaguely what it' s about. But I'm filled with desperation, nausea and unease because there is always the fear that I am about to get lost in the massive amount of pages and characters who are now floating through the pages. Some people outline, others "follow their pen," which I find sort of an irritating statement because at some point you are going to have to make some decisions, yes?
And because this is a new book, I've made some new inroads. A new keyboard! (I seem to pound through the letters so I need a new one every few months. Does anyone have a solution?)
A new computer! (I love my Dell so much i'd like to marry it.)
And chocolate infused with chili to get me through the toughest writing moments.
