A THUNDERBOLT OF INSPIRATION has struck me yet again.
The story hasn't come in its entirety, yet much of the set-up has. And this one's a children's novel. Highly ideal on the wearied hands for typing as it's only going to be 15-25,000 words.
All enthusiasm for works describing (a) my own life, or (b) drug use or addiction of any kind has deserted me.
This one's a comedy that I can write utterly naturally in a style all my own ~ on my own level (ooer!) ~ without dumbing down.
I feel I can speak to children pretty much on my own level. This is for the absolute classic age of children's fiction: the 8-12s. Practically all the classics of children's literature were written for children in this age range. The tale, as currently conceived, is in the tradition of Spike Milligan's Bad Jelly the Witch (click here to read its entirety) and most of Roald Dahl...
So now I've two books on my hands and I am indeed going for both of them.
So wish me luck, please, as this amounts to nearly 200,000 words of keyboard clattering plus two great slabs of A4 500s per copy of both!
No delay! I'm starting today.
Please wish me luck because I'll need it.
PS I'm being sued for nonpayment of poll tax. Council tax whatever the merchant bankers at the council call it now...
