Time to refocus

I've had a busy week, so gave myself a break from writing. Now that novel one has finally left home, I need to turn my attention back to novel two, which has been forming gradually in my mind for a long time.

I've got many of the elements, the main and some secondary characters, the principal settings, some of the plot elements, but there are still more to find before I can start writing. Novel two, unlike novel one, is also going to need quite a lot of research. Over the past months I have been doing online research at odd times and I have quite a few websites bookmarked for further reading. I also have a few books to read or revisit and a DVD to watch.

A two week half term is about to start, so I think I've got the perfect excuse to escape to the library now and then...

lol yes two weeks can be a long time, here's to lots of sunshine and a peaceful library when you can escape!

Welcome Babs! Sadly even sunshine won't help as son 2 is a real indoors guy. What we do need is a reliable internet connection and we're struggling with that at the moment :(

I'm at that transition stage myself. The first novel is out banging on doors, and I'm beginning to work on the second novel.

Hiding out in the library, good woman! I need to sort through my book marks as I've got far too many on the computer now and it's 'untidy'.

Ooh, sounds good, I love hanging out in libraries. Enjoy.

Apologies for the delay in responding to your comments, we've had internet problems.

Paul - good luck with your submissions!

DJ and Queenie - the library certainly has huge appeal during school holidays, though it might turn out to be just as noisy as home!
