With the change in season I’ve realised it’s also time for me to clean up my writing area. For three years the wall and notice board have been covered in notes about goblins, but this year the fairies have invaded. When I look at the wall there are notes about future heroes, about Annwyn and a heroine that is proving very tight lipped. Now that the page proofs are done on the last Shadowlands book there is no need for me to hang onto the notes (or at least keep them stuck to the wall).
There’s things like ‘Brac died before Fane’ (crucial not to forget that one!).
‘Goblin with a scar on his face’.
And my personal favourite ‘Meryn’s nightmares come true’.
Alongside them I now have fairy related things like ‘Verden=Johnny Depp in Chocolat’ and ‘when did Jacqui eat the fairy food?’ and ‘How many should die from plague?’.
On one hand it’s sad to end a series, but on the other I know that my Celtic heroes all got their HEA and there are new worlds to create and new adventures to have.
Spring is also time for me to corral my new ideas into something workable as I get quite a bit of plotting done over the long summer holidays (December and January in Australia). Come the new year I’ll have lots of stories to write and new goals to set :)
