When your characters start speaking to you and you just can’t shut them up.
This morning when I started writing, I was determined to finish one of my projects only to find myself working on a ghost story with a deadline in three days.
No problem, said I.
Suddenly the story I thought I was writing has taking me off in a different direction. I looked through my collection of submissions to see if the plot line would fit another submission I have. But no it won’t.
I have decided, I can’t afford to waste this story on projects which aren’t going to give me any rewards apart from another publication in an anthology with no payment.
I feel I can take this story to fifty-five thousands words quite easily. So ‘Deadline’ has become my next novel.
‘A man sets out to write a ghost story only to find he’s haunted by his own past. To survive, he must be honest with himself. ‘
Happy writing everyone
