2012 has not been a good year for me. Personal tragedies and stresses have made it difficult to concentrate on writing. I am determined 2013 will be better, although I know some things are not within my ability to change.
Next year I hope to concentrate on an epic novel between 200,000 and 300,000 words long. It will be a fantasy novel - if you've read my previous books you probably guessed that before I said it. First I must complete my obligations for existing contracts and tidy up a few submissions which need to be sent off. Then it's full steam ahead for the "Big One".
Working name for this novel is "Eye from the Past" but this is open to change as the novel develops.
Why now? I have been planning the planet, people and storyline for about four years and I feel now is the time to write it. Recent events have shown me I should make time to work on this manuscript. Never leave the really important things too long. Time might be shorter than you think.
So roll on 2013, I'm clearing the decks so I can dive in and write, write, write.
