I stopped publishing for a while but not writing – I have drawers of plots and characters and worlds and scenes and notes and…you get the idea. I have Lady Amelia Wildeheart, steampunk botanist. She is longing to make herself known. There are sea-serpents, sand ships, antlered men and holy wells. Temples and goddesses, ice-dragons and druids.
And I never even thought of using my draft novels to theme an ecourse. So now I am sitting on my bed surrounded by notes, rereading old friends and feeling more inspired that I have done for a very long while.
