It seems quite absurd that up until a couple of weeks ago I’d spent about three months piddling about trying to find a story idea that I was comfortable with. Three attempts at quite detailed outlines didn’t really help, although I tried to convince myself at the time that they did, and then, out of the blue, came Tomorrow Will Come and It Will Be Just Like Today. And with it everything started clicking back into place.
I now have 10,000 words “in the bag”, well into Chapter 2, and I’m really happy with the tone and direction. For a first draft it’s certainly well on the way to having the degree of intensity and character complexity I’m aiming for. As exhausting and demanding as I know these characters will be over the coming months, it really is a huge relief to be working again on something that I feel passionate about and, more to the point, that I enjoy.
I will be putting the first four chapters in my Sample section but the following chapters will not be available via this website. If you are, however, interested in becoming a reader, drop me a line and — if I know and trust you 😉 — I’ll see to it that you get the chapters as they are completed. The only conditions are that you do not breach copyright by sharing the work in any form and that you give an honest opinion of the work.
