After thinking about it long enough, finally I start a blog that’s just to do with my writing. I don’t know how many hats you wear but I feel like I wear heaps. This is a blog with one hat on – a black fedora with an emu feather in its brim that says ‘Writer’.
At the moment I’m writing a fantasy book but after 40,000 words I’ve decided to put it away for a while. It needs a stronger element in it: I just don’t know what it is yet. I’ll have to think about it for a while. In the meantime, I’ve got an article I want to finish on the New Zealand writer Janet Frame and a new novel to start that I’ve been thinking about for a while. And there are some decisions to make about other things I could be writing: should I write an essay for the Caibre Prize this year? I did last year. All these projects and not really enough time. Maybe I should just concentrate on the new novel?
