I've done it—submitted my novel. Now I know most authors do not get their first novel published, so I am trying not to get too excited. But I feel free, like I've put all this time and effort into this novel, and now it's done, out of my hands.
I am going to have to start on another writing project but which one? I have an idea about an historical novel based on my family history, that I want to start. I have started another YA story based on a dream I had about an invasion in Beechworth. I've also started a dark urban fantasy novella. And I have two more books to write after this novel I've just finished—I plan on it being a trilogy.
I've just finished reading 'Darkness unbound' and 'Darkness rising' by Keri Arthur a Melbourne writer and I just love reading about all the dark creatures that live in Melbourne. In the last one I finished, they were at the Werribee Mansion, I live near Werribee Mansion and I've been there. I wonder if Keri went and had a coffee and tour one day to get that scene right.
My next book is '50 shades of grey' and it arrived today so I will let you all know how that goes.
