This business of writing seriously is complicated.
Because I have decided to expand my short story writing into something more I now have to think about who my characters are, give them each a profile.
Now I am starting to think about where I am setting it. Village, town, city. What should I call it etc. Building up a picture in my mind.
Another thing I have had to think about is what kind of book will this be, but I realise I have no choice, if I am to write what I am any good at it will have to be humour.
I have not written any more since I wrote the first two scenes, but my mind is constantly working on building it.
One day I will get started on the story proper.
