hillary! wanted a hint as to what the new novel is about. I will give you three:
- The working title is a song by an all-girl band from the nineties. The title (and song) pretty much covers what the novel is about.
- There have been many hints in previous posts. You just have to find them. Hint: there is a one click way to do so.
- There are no witches or fairies in it. Is my first stab at realism. All those teachers and
idiotsfriends of mine who’ve been after me to read/write “proper” books will be dead happy. The thought of making them happy, of course, really annoys me. I’m still trying to figure out how to sneak some fantasy elements in. So far it’s not working out. Curses!
Hope that helps. Actually, no I don’t. Cause it’s so early in the life of this novel—I only have twenty thousand words—that I don’t want to be sharing too much. Might break it. Is tender delicate plant needing extra gentle care or will curl up and die.
Let us speak of something else. Oh, look, over there: giant flying woolly squirrels!
