So, I’ve been working on ideas for my second Throckton novel for Transworld. It’s going well.
I have been utterly ambushed by another idea.
I don’t have a lot of words today because I have used them up over the last few days. Two synopses (I HATE writing synopses) and 5,000 words of the New Thing, plus an email to my editor explaining that I’ve got two things on the go and am happy to write either….
Here is Wendy Cope. Please substitute ‘book ideas’ for ‘men’ throughout. It doesn’t scan as well but it captures how I’m feeling.
(Except of course I can get on one bus, then the next. Which will be fine so long as I don’t get too many other buses along in the mean time. Still, it’s a nice ‘problem’ to have…. I’ll let you know what my editor says.)
