I am being haunted ...

.... by the main characters in my novel, and what has happened to them, why and what they do about it.

Yet, I haven't written a word of it down. I keep making the excuse that I don't know where it should start - the options are Now and Then. I see the two main characters, I know which one is which, what they wear, what they smell like, etc, etc.

It's late now. But, I will definately write 1,000 words tomorrow.

I promise to myself.

And, you are my witness.

(Unless, of course, I do the meme that Breezy Break has set me (7 things about gardening & me; and tagging 7 other gardening (or not) blogs) - as a slight distraction excercise) tum, te, tum, te, tum.

The hardest thing of all is to start writing. I speak as one of the world's experts at putting the moment off. But I will come and haunt you...

keep haunting me, Carole!

I have, however, written a couple of hundred words today ... so, a start has been made...

How's it going? I got Charlie half way up a drain pipe and haven't written a word since. Will have to get the poor girl down some time soon... I hope.

Did you start it yet?

You do know, don't you, that you should just sit down and start writing? If it's an either / or thing, just toss a coin and get going. You can always rearranmge things and edit at a later date, but not unless you have something to edit in the first place. Now, get on with it! Go! Shoo!
