I write…but when the story is finished, the editing must begin. It can be a long and arduous process. You are often torn between feelings of joy and despair (as you read little gems and their counter part – really horrible clunky sentences within the same paragraph).
Sometimes I just have to put it down. I can get too bogged down in my work that I can’t see what needs to happen. So…I turn to another hobby. I illustrate.
The work above is some of my work, mostly inspired by my first fantasy fiction novel ‘The Sound of the Stones’.
I am writing the second novel now, so the illustrations are on hold. Hopefully when I complete the first draft of the second novel and start the edits I will feel like illustrating again!
