No, not witch, although it might be more interesting (note to self: write a book about witches). I’m in that lovely state between sending off my previous book and deciding what to write next. My last book, currently titled Impossible Things, is about a warlord and a blind slave and a dog called Brutus. It’s total, all-out fantasy, which has left me with a yearning to write something firmly set in the real world.
Only…I’m not great at that! Yes, I’ve written contemporaries, but they’re a little implausible, which is half the fun. I had an idea for my next book, which involved a Hollywood movie star and an ordinary girl, but ordinary is, like, way boring, so maybe she might turn out to be a con artist instead. I’m not sure (note to self: order Hustle box set).
Then there’s the other story which has been on the back burner for a while. This one has a one-legged detective and a girl who sees ghosts. Which is awesome, but it has no plot (note to self: research phantom limb and fictional possibilities thereof).
Or there’s…you get the picture. Which one do I write next?
