This is my editors hat.
Isn't she beautiful?
Black. Formal. Sensible. But with a dash of colour that hints at a fun and adventurous side. Anything can happen...
Thought I'd pop in briefly and say "Hi." It has been a while hasn't it?
It has been very quiet here at the Dragon's Pen. I haven't had much to say ... mostly, to be honest, because I haven't been doing much book-wise.
Maybe I needed a break - maybe I've earned one?
I started writing this book approx seven months ago, finished it on a high and dived straight into editing only to get 12,000 words in and grind to a shrieking halt.
"It's too hard!"
"I can't write. I'll never be able to do this story justice."
"I just don't feel like it right now."
"I'd rather read or play a computer game..."
All these things have trotted though my mind over the last week or so. I've read some good books and spent way too many hours playing games on my computer. :)
But now I'm dreaming about Book Two and I must get this one finished.
The itch is back. So, I'm rolling up my sleeves and stapling my Editors Hat to my head so it can't fall off again (painful but necessary, believe me).
And I'm telling myself:
"I can write, really, I can."
"This story is awesome!"
(Insert growly voice) "Just stick your butt in the chair and get on with it!"
And other positive stuff like that.
So here goes ... again.
