Immersed In The Writing Process

Ja, I know I've been quiet the past couple of days. I haven't had much balance in my life for most of February. Spent most of my time either writing or reading, with very small amounts of time given over to sleeping. As a result, I'm exhausted and could do with a whole week's worth of uninterrupted sleep. The good news is that I now have about 35 short new articles; enough copy to automate publishing on the OneLove web site for the whole of March, freeing me to put more of my time and energy on the alchol campaign web site. The campaign is called Phuza Wise, and aims to reduce violence perpetrated as a result of drinking. I know some people multi-task very well, but I do better on new big projects when my mind is not being pulled in different directions, so I needed to clear part of my writing schedule to make room in my head to concentrate on something else.

The un-named story is also going very well. Words are still gushing out of me ( another reason I'm not sleeping well), but the story is now starting to take shape and I'm gaining confidence in myself and in the story. It's going to be a romantic fantasy novel. Huh! Who knew I actually had that kind of story inside of me!

Wow - sounds like you've been busy. Hope you get some sleep soon. I've not been sleeping either and it's starting to take its toll on my work. Blergh.

Your fantasy romance sounds very interesting!

Romantic fantasy, that sounds so exciting. Tell us when it is published so we can buy it :)

Thanks guys. Po, I'm not even thinking about publication yet. At this stage, I'm just offloading this story from my head; and hoping that it will come together into something publishable. Never written romantic fantasy before, so I don't know if I can actually hack.
