I forget that I am an adult…

Sometimes I forget I am an adult.

It gets to ‘bedtime’ and I start to think I should switch everything off and go to bed, but I’m in the middle of doing something…I forget I am an adult, I can stay up if I want to.

Far too often I am waiting for someone else to give me permission to do something, just like when I was a kid and had to get my mum’s say so, or the go-ahead from dad. But I am an adult now and I forget that I don’t need permission.

I can get up when I want to, go to the cinema when I want to, eat what I want and have the people I choose to have in my life… sometimes I just need to remind myself of that.

So, when I am up till 3am writing, its cos I can, Cos I am an adult that can make my own decisions.

Until I am ill… then I don’t29542791_2039524019668972_8084621711104685672_n want to be an adult anymore…

I am back…. I think!

Gosh, where does the time go!..

I took a little break over Christmas and New year… and then I ended up going away for some R&R in the sunshine…

However, I was at least working during this time! My next book, The Promise, is almost ready to be published. I’m excitedly nervous as always.

I have also completed my first draft of another WIP. I wanted to push myself and try writing something I didn’t think I could do. So, I don’t know yet whether it will ever see the light of day haha, writing a detective novel is a lot different to what I am usually drawn to.

And, I have started back on the third book in the Cam Thomas Series. I love the Cam universe, I feel very much at home there with them both. Lots will be going on in YES.

Cam and Michelle will be visiting London…

Music to write to..

CSP_4555So, I don’t mean music that you listen to that helps you get writing, but the music you put to your novel. Like a soundtrack. When I think of my characters and how I am going to write the scene, I often see it in my head like a movie and in those moments when the dialogue has finished then I hear a soundtrack.

I know several writers that, like me, have certain songs that fit their characters and the novel they have written.

Here’s a few I have in my Cam Thomas Playlist.

Blink 182 – Los Angeles

Shwayze – Love is overrated

Judie Tzuke – Stay with me till dawn
