Attempting new method…what can go wrong?


I have never typed poetry/ prose directly into my lap top. I absolutely hate ‘typing up’ though, so it occurs to me that now my typing speed is faster than ‘PVA glue slowly drying while you watch’..maybe i will give it a go. I am 10,000 words into my new novel/novella..and have been handwriting and typing up each day this week. For Filled with Ghosts I wrote by hand and then typed up the 65,000 words before diving into/cutting out and structuring it. Going to attempt new method..for today at least….this illustration is one of twelve i did for Filled with Ghosts in one of it’s incarnations. This is one of five that i didn’t submit with the manuscript.
