Late last night, I finally came up with the first line of my new book. I was expecting it - I've been waiting for it for a while - so you'd think I'd be ready to make a note, wouldn't you?
Sometimes, when I think of brilliant lines after I've turned my light off, I'm too comfy and try to remember it. It never actually works, though, so last night I put the light on, grabbed my pen and scribbled it down on the back of an envelope. Jut as well, because when I woke up this morning, I'd forgotten that I'd written it!
That's why writers always carry pens :-)
I am now listening to Ella Fitzgerald and reading about hearing voices, both for research.
I'm also thankful for the wonderful walk I had on Seaton Beach yesterday, topped off with a lovely hot chocolate.
Oh, look at that - it's May! Yes, I finished my A-Z Challenge, and was overwhelmed buy the number of wonderful comments I received about my vignettes. I am now working on a new project (possibly a novella, probably a novel), and querying agents with my latest novel.
In the meantime, I'm joining in with a Facebook party to launch a new book from one of my fellow Vagabondage Press authors, J.S Watts...

Holly Jepps has been a mortal all her life. But at thirty-eight, her fairy godfather appears to tell her she’s a witch, and suddenly she has to come to terms with the uncertainties of an alarmingly magic-fuelled world. Magic is not like it is in the books and movies, and Holly starts to doubt whether her fairy godfather, Partridge Mayflower, is the charmer he appears.
In the world of magic, appearances are deceptive, and Holly cannot afford to trust those closest to her, including herself. Accidents start to happen, loved ones endangered, and Old Magic is on the hunt. But in the age-old game of cat and mouse, just who is the feline and who is the rodent?
Witchlight” is Harry Potter for grownups, with all the magic and all the humor, plus a cocktail hour and some romantic intrigue. With Jacquie Watts' lyrical prose, British wit, and irrepressible protagonist Holly Jepps, “Witchlight” is an enchanting read.
AUTHOR: J.S. Watts
