I have talked about everyone having a book inside them I’ve quoted Hitchens in the past. What people tend not to say is the second part, which is along the lines of “and that’s exactly where it should stay”. Now, if any known author had done that, we would have missed out on seriously good reading. Now, I am not saying that I am comparing myself to Rowling, but you just don’t know do you. What if you have an idea for a book? At the very least, you need to test the idea and if the consensus is “thank you, we’ll call you” (a euphemism for don’t bother) then fair enough. But test the idea.
Now, I have the merest glimmer of an idea for a book, and surprisingly it is a work of fiction, which is the last thing I expected. Now, to do it justice, I need to do a fair bit of research, I have no idea of the plot, or the characters, except a couple of potentials. Like I say, research.
On facebook, We are now on week 37 of our Fantasy Holiday 2021. Visiting Louisiana. Just very briefly my thoughts turn to next year and whether or not I am going to have a writing project for Facebook. There are two questions; Am I going to do it? That I will is by no means certain, as to what I might do; I definitely do have an idea, that I would love to follow up. I’m not even going to discuss it now. But, it would be really interesting (to me at least).
Then of course, there is this blog. There is no way I am going to stop doing this.
