I’m hoping…

… that having fun when writing translates through to the reader. Because, I have been really enjoying the writing lately. It is showing up in my progress rate – e.g. today I have added 1136 words so far (may do a few more before bed, who knows?), even after deleting about 700+ older words (yeh, you do the maths). That’s a whole lot of fun, right there. It does have a lot to do with rewriting a couple of major conflict scenes – conflict is fun to write… even when you’re a whole lot meaner to your character than you intended to be (in fact, it’s probably because, rather than despite)… Actually, I always knew I’d be that mean to him, I just didn’t think I’d do it in such a public scene… Oh well, he had to deal with it some time.

Oh, 1150 words now.. huh. Where do they come from?




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.
