In-between compulsively checking my email, I’ve decided I want a break from revising and desperately need to write something NEW. A giant reworking of a previous novel just seems too daunting at the moment. Blech.
I’m brainstorming for a new story instead, initially sparked by a dream (don’t worry, no vampires). It’s really wanting to be a sort of fairy-tale retelling, so I might follow that thought and see where it leads. So far today I’ve been researching reindeer online and hitting up BehindTheName for name ideas, and I discovered that “Guadalupe” (the name of a street near me) means “river of the wolf,” which I thought was extremely interesting.
Okay, that’s all I’ve got. I think I need to check my email.
