Welcome to the place where I rant, rave and discuss books, writing, the town of Cobourg Ontario and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Starting on a new idea

It's been over 6 months since I have even peeked at my last project. It had nowhere to go as far as my thought process was concerned. So it took a few months to finally say, "Ok, it's not the time to write this novel". Then it took a couple of months on top of that to have a lovely little brainstorm about a new project. That brainstorm hit about 2 nights ago when I was trying to sleep.

The idea came to me while I was reflecting on my life, and my death really. No I'm not dying, that I know of... but my mortality has come into view lately, as well as the mortality of those I love and the idea just built on itself.

So here I go on a new project, no fancy notebooks and binders, cutesy sticky-notes or colour co-ordinated pens. Just a plain old composition book, a pen, my laptop and some ideas... well maybe a few cutesy sticky notes for good measure ;)
