At some point in the (hopefully very near future) I will be able to write something other than my thesis without suffering guilt-induced panic attacks. Occasionally i get over excited about these golden days to come and start making plans. I’m especially keen to get cracking on The Castle Project, which I posted about on my old blog, Stangeland. Basically, I’m planning a book called ‘The Girl in the Castle’ and I’m to experiment with the developmental process by posting bits and pieces on my blog to make that process visible. All writers work differently and I think it’s good for us to share our processes. I also hope it keeps me motivated, the way the terror of facing examiners keeps me motivated while working on my PhD.
