Lost In Wonderland

Alice has me lost in Wonderland and I don’t know where I’m going… I don’t think Alice knows too.

Today, I didn’t go walking in the morning as we have more rain, instead I hit my exercise bike. Not so much to see apart from an untidy room. Hopefully once the car boot sales are back again, I can have a good clear out. I’ve found I’m a bit slow getting back into writing after stepping away from it for a few days. I think my mind is on the garden, but the bad weather has put a stop to me going out there. I have tomatoes and butternuts plants growing in pots on my kitchen window ledge. I enjoy being in the garden on a spring day when the sun has some warmth. Nothing makes you feel more alive than working with soil and planting vegetable plants you’ve grown from seeds. I save the seeds from vegetable I’ve bought during the winter months. I dry the seeds off and store them ready for the spring.

I’ve finally found the thread I needed to get the words flowing with my Alice story. In the story, White Rabbit has become humanoid as I have given him the opportunity to speak. He still dresses with his top hat, waistcoat and breeches, but I’ve changed a few other things to. The outline to the theme of the book means each of the thirteen writers have been given a premise in which we have to work from. Mine is Crime in a supernatural sense. The theme was that Alice has been set up and why? Again, it has to be speculative.

Alice came to a fork in the road and asked the Cheshire Cat ~ “Which road do I take?”

“Where do you want to go?” Asked the Cheshire Cat.

“I don’t know.”

“Then it doesn’t matter,” answered the Cheshire Cat and went back to sleep.

Alice through the looking glass.

Originally, I was just going to allow Alice to narrate the story, but I couldn’t carry it forward. By allowing White to talk it changed the flow of the words and has kick-started the story much better. I still can’t see where Alice is taking the reader or what the crime she’s about to become involved with, which is annoying. I shall have to keep working at it. So far, she has a note which has been slipped under her door, and a small gold key with a label on it.

So I better get back to finding out where White Rabbit has gone. I feel there could be trouble ahead.

Bye for now.
