And here’s a look inside of the blue notebook in said bag:
Stories are inside, is essentially what I’m saying. I’m deep like that.
Due to the nice weather we’ve been having, a lot of people have been posting pictures of icy drinks for this week’s photo prompt. I considered adding a gin and tonic to the list, but opted to go with something a bit more representative of life at the moment (more’s the pity..). Y’see reader, the first thing I am faced with of a morning is this: a fresh page in my notebook, waiting to be filled with more of the rewrite of book 7 I’ve been ploughing through.
This is the sort of rewrite that has changed almost everything – focus, plot, gender of the main protagonist… you name it, I’ve changed it. In a lot of ways it’s been like starting from scratch – afresh, if you want to labour the point a little more. Still, I’m optimistic the story will come out of the process fitter, happier and more productive. And if not, guess I’ll crack into the gin.
This week’s photo prompt was ‘thankful‘, to coincide with Thanksgiving in the USA. I am thankful for a lot of stuff, but I didn’t want to post pictures of all the friends, family and peanut based confectionery that give my life meaning without getting their permission; so I’ve gone with words and caffeine – two of the things that shape my daily life and make this blog what it is.
