Writing Progress

I am currently working on chapter 7. It is a bit different to the old Chapter 7, so there is plenty of work to do on it. Unfortunately it is not always easy to get much writing done when you have a baby to look after. However, I have come up with a little dialogue today – always good, in my opinion. Dialogue can be the hardest part to write – it’s the bit that relies on creative juices flowing.

I have finished a first draft of Chapter 6. However, since it is a bit of a ‘breather’ chapter, I won’t put it up until I have Chapter 7 to put up, too… gotta leave you with a hunger for more! And then the next couple of chapters won’t need too much work, so they should be able to be put up soon after. And then it will be on with the hard work. From about Chapter 9 I will have to discard nearly everything I have written previously. But I am OK with that.

Bed time soon. Maybe in a half doze I will hear a little more dialogue… that’s usually when it happens.

Happy reading!




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction.
