Nearly there…

I am determined to finally finish The Four Matthews this week.  I can’t believe I am coming to the end of it.  It feels as though this has been a long time coming, but now the novel is nearing its conclusion I feel a bit sad.  I will actually miss my characters.  They are like real people to me.  At the same time I would like to get it out of the way and crack on with my next project.

I feel nervous that I won’t take to my characters in my next novel Majella Bracebridge the way I have to the Four Matthews ones.  I have to bond with them in order to give them any semblance of believability.  Yes, I know that sounds terribly precious.  Maybe it goes with the territory.

I have lately found it really freeing actually handwriting rather than typing it straight up on to the computer.  Obviously computers make writing so much easier and quicker, but sometimes they can render the process a bit soulless.  Getting back to basics, as it were, scribbling away with a good old-fashioned pen and paper, lets language run free.  It energises me.
