While waiting for spring to arrive - hurry up! - and in the misty limbo that is waiting to hear from publishers, I've been keeping myself busy writing my next manuscript. (Word count is now 22,000 for those who care about these things - see my recent post.) I'm also following an on-line flash fiction editing course, writing flash fiction and also messing about with some unpublished short stories that I may or may not enter into competitions this year.
But, of course, I can't forget The Lark Ascending and its characters. After all, I've spent so much time living with them so I can't abandon them. I love them too much, However, I can't edit or tweak it at the moment. I don't even lovingly gaze on its file: because, as I said, it's lurking hopefully in Limbo-Land.
Then, I discovered Pinterest. I'm not sure what the point or worth of it is but it takes me back to the days when I compiled loads of scrap-books on different themes. And now, magically and digitally, I've been able to recreate the world of The Lark Ascending It's huge fun- without the sharp scissors and sticky, smelly glue. I'm still adding bits and bobs when I remember more scenes and events. I am very much dithering on the nursery slopes so please bear with me.
So, without further ado, may I invite you to click here to take a look at the images I've assembled so far for The Lark Ascending. There will be more.
I shall be starting one soon for my novel in progress. It's addictive.
