Reading...

I'm reading Charlotte Bronte's Shirley, which apparently popularised the name for girls as, before giving it to a female character Shirley was solely a male name! Shirley not! I've also had a great idea for a new novel - I think. It's been brewing for quite some time and then someone recently re-emerged and in doing so has unwittingly provided the missing piece of the metaphorical jigsaw, and so it could well now have wings. We'll see. I have so many other things to do, but whenever a story fans itself out it begs to at least be noted, and from there to be outlined, and from there written and re-written. Or just written until there's a natural end. I'm not yet at the stage where I can say 'this is my writing process'. Some plan obsessively before putting pen to paper, some just begin to type and see where it takes them. Onwards...
