Saying It in Silver

Do you like sparkle? I do.

I’ve been happy lately to usher Savage Girl into the world, delighted to see people get ahold of the book and resonate to the story. There’s nothing like a fresh book out there reaching people to make you feel good — after all, isn’t reaching people a big part of why we do this crazy thing called writing?

And yet my head is partly somewhere else, where my next novel is coming into being. And that’s a little dicey territory sometimes, a dark place where I have to feel my way along rather blindly. It can be a challenge, figuring out voice and plot and characterization, all the basic ingredients in a novelistic stew.

And I’ll say it again, it’s sometimes the kind of dark where you need a heavy duty flashlight.

So I went and got some silver to lighten things up. Give my brain a break, and use my hands to knit a slithery sparkly something.
