60,000 words of NaNoWriMo might sound impressive, but in all I have written well over half a million words in what is currently a four part series of supernatural novels, about psychics and demons. There are also multiple ‘short stories,’ like The Railway Dilemma, that are either being written, or on my ‘to do’ list. ‘The Halve’ as the main story is called, is currently being diligently rewritten. It’s four years old and needed an update. I hope that this bigger, (and hopefully better,) story will be finished and self-published, maybe sometime later in the year.
Q & A:
The best thing about writing this book?
Writing this novel was my part in the NaNoWriMo challenge. To complete a novel of 50,000 or more words in under a month. I managed to write 60,000 words in just 28 days. The hard work, day and night, the researching, the characters, all had to be done and brought to life in a relatively short time. It was very enjoyable during the dark days of November, and as it was set at the same time of year, the season made it come to life as I was writing.
Where did you get your idea for this story?
It’s a short story based on the adventures of a character in my book series ‘The Halve’. I got the idea from my local walks around the countryside, one of which is along a disused railway line, which is now a public footpath. My imagination started cooking up ideas about what supernatural goings on, could be taking place along this path. The Railway Dilemma was born, and the dark mystery of what happens along this route was a great challenge, for a great and entertaining character.
What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
Love what you do, through the good times and the bad. Always acknowledge that more can be done. Your novel will never truly be finished, even if it’s on a shelf in a store, or a library. There will always be something new and interesting you think of.
Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
Coffee! Not cheap nasty stuff, it has to be a good strong coffee with a delicious something to snack on to the side.
I don’t have a favourite book exactly. A book is a series of pages bound together. The words however… all are words fascinating to me, even in other languages. Words are strung together to make stories. So yes, my favourite story: Pride and Prejudice. It’s a brilliant classic. 🙂
I want to thank Sean Hattersley for allowing me to promote his book on my blog. I hope this post has inspired you to go out and read The Railway Dilemma.
