|I spy, with my little eye, something beginning with A.|
Since book two is not yet out - it's being published in late February 2013 - I can't discuss the plot in any detail. But Lucy and Queen Elizabeth are still point of view characters. And since it begins in 1588, year of the Armada, it's also safe to say a few Spanish ships may be involved ...
To help me gather more words under my belt, I have joined NaNoWriMo, an excellent programme designed to encourage writers to write regularly and also swiftly, where people attempt to complete one 50,000 word novel in a month.
Obviously, my novel will be more than twice that length. So I will not be finishing my novel in November. But I will be using NaNoWriMo to speed me on my way in these first difficult weeks as the book takes shape.
If you are a NaNoWriMo fan, do come and jolly me along as I return to a regular writing rhythm again after several months or rewriting and revisions on other books.
