Nothing happened this week, not on the outside, anyway. On the inside it was a week full of excitement and adventure. And uncertainty. And frustration. And occasional moments of ‘Yessssss!’
All of which means that the new series is underway at last. 🙂
I don’t mean I’m writing already. I mean I’m finding my way into the world of the story, making lots of notes in my new notebook, cutting out pictures and glueing them in, digging out my ‘sparks’ folder and reading through all the odd things that have found their way there over the years. Looking for inspiration, for things that will get my imagination working.
It’s an odd and interesting stage, this. I need to have other things going on, preferably practical things like planning workshops, as a sort of counterbalance. And I have to be careful not to make final decisions too quickly, but to leave everything bubbling along in a sort of creative sludge for as long as possible.
So that’s where I am. In one word. Sludge. But good sludge, not bad sludge. 😉
