So we said we didn’t write plot lines, didn’t do story outlines, that we were some kind of anarchic write it as it comes and dam the readers kinda rebel!
Well that may not have been the picture painted in your minds, but in mine I was indeed a wee bit of a rebel without a plotline!
And then, as with all things flimsy, it all comes crashing down to the ground…
I haven’t finished book three, but here I am typing away like a daemon at the story that will be book four!
Three now has a new end point, a different destination from the one originally envisioned and now we need to create a suitable journey that takes us there.
Ideas have the most spurious of beginnings, but the one for ‘Prison’ has now become a bit of a wildfire in my imagination.
How did it begin?
An off the cuff remark about suffering not being exclusively or even predominately physical – and where and in what circumstance could we engineer such a scenario?
Answer – Prison.
Not just Prison – but a Victorian (late 1800’s) prison!
All other projects, side or otherwise, have been placed in stasis.
This story wants to be written.
This tale needs to be told.
So, book with three I will complete a journey that needed to be taken, book four a narrative now in need of telling!
Will Amy triumph?
Have no fear, I’m sure she will.
But as ever it will be hard won bitter and painful.
