It’s 1 September, the start of a new academic year. I have no further study to start but I do have a few to finish. I also need to decide which novel I’m going to finish and fast.
Will it be 0: The Fool, of which I have 15,000 words written and a full plan? Will it be Catch the Rainbow, of which I have 15,000 words written and a full plan? Or will it be Laguna Sunrise, of which I have 15,000 words written (do you see a pattern here?) and no plan? (Ah.)
The Fool is a contemporary mystery and the first of a series of Tarot-based novels. Catch the Rainbow is a historical mystery based on the Birmingham pub bombings of 1974. It’s also a prequel to Night Crawler, published last year. Laguna Sunrise is a contemporary mystery/romance.
The Fool and Catch the Rainbow need to be at least 75,000 words each. Laguna Sunrise can be 50,000 – 60,000 words. The Fool needs research and Tarot readings. Catch the Rainbow needs research and interviews. Laguna Sunrise needs research.
I know I’ve asked this before, but I always have been one for taking on board suggestions, constructive criticism, advice, etc. I don’t always do what people suggest, but I always consider what they have to say. I’ve kind of made up my mind, I think, but I’m interested in what others (aka the readership) also think.
So for one last time (this time) it’s over to you.
- 0: The Fool
- Catch the Rainbow
- Laguna Sunrise
Thank you very much. 🙂
