I'm having so much fun with AutumnBook. My strange, mouldering little Gothic tale. I think the MC's voice might be too grandiose for it to qualify as a Young Adult novel, but what do I know? Or, frankly, care? It is what it is. Which is to say, it comes from the mouldering little Gothic heart of me, and that's what's important. Besides, the MC's voice is so strong there's nothing I can do to change it, so I just listen instead, and let the story sweep me up.

I feel like I'm jumping from pool of light to pool of light. Imagine streetlights flickering to life, one at a time, along the road, and me leaping from one to the next. Each pool of light is a scene, and I capture each on the page as it lights up in my mind, then pause and wait for the next to flicker to life.

My MC likes to play around with words — who knew?

One of the twins is an inventor — didn't see that coming!

While I always do a certain amount of plotting/planning/outlining/call it what you will, in advance, I also need to have plenty of wriggle room for such unexpected aspects of the story to emerge as I discover the story by telling it.

And all in a sparkly purple notebook that's a joy to write in.

*Sigh*. Writing bliss.
