TGI Friday!


 A December dawn in Lanzarote
I don't know about you, but I love Friday's. The thought that the weekend is here is a fab feeling. Though as a writer I never really stop, but the other distractions that take me away from writing are so much more less at the weekend... TGI Friday!

This week has been another manic week and despite packing lots in, I've still not got all the Christmas presents bought or the tree up so I will need to get my skates on next week. 

But as well as re-designing my web site http://www.paulinebarclay.co.uk/ I have managed to write a few more words on my next novel, book 4. It's been a bit of s struggle with this book for a variety of reasons, mainly because my thoughts are constantly thinking about how to improve my marketing for my three published books. But the good news is that the characters in my new novel are getting restless and are not just talking to me, but begging me to listen! So I intend to devote large chunks of time this weekend to finding out just what they want me to hear!

Do your characters behave like this or is it just my crazy imagination running riot?

Whatever your plans are for the weekend, reading, writing, even listening to characters.... make sure you have a fab one!

I haven't even gotten as far as you in the publishing process. But I can certainly appreciate the clamoring that must be going on in your mind as you sort through the different voices who have a story to tell.
