Happy New Year
Filed under Arts & Crafts
With tinsel hair and twinkle toes a little fairy glides
Spreads ice and snow from her wand and wearing rabbit hides
She spreads her wings above us all and snowflakes flutter down
To rain joy upon us all and making smiles from frowns
Each and every winter, the little fairy comes
To paint the world white with snow so you can play in it with your chums
Hip, hip hooray for snow fairy
In her pearly gown
She brings such joy to everyone, when she has come to town!

My mind is above a joke lately.
I am getting so many new ideas for writing and art projects that it is affecting productivity in the past few weeks!
I have no idea what has happened to my brain, but today alone I have written down synopsises of nine new stories and I have too many ideas for artwork too!
But one thing is clear; I am becoming predominantly a science fiction and dark fantasy writer; if there is such a thing as dark science fiction, well I think I am that too!
I have only managed to write plans down in the past few weeks, because of intense pain and medical emergencies – the laboratories seem late in the results, I only hope there isn’t another laboratory accident as that would be the fourth one in the last five years, where I had have to have tests redone!
I have never known a hospital that is so accident prone!
Sitting at a desk is agony and the sofa is not that good either, but it is much better than the dining chair or office swivel chair.
I am trying to force myself to work on my writing and this is scaring Paul, because I am pushing myself a lot and I have been near collapse.
I am sedentary and yet I still can’t cope? I don’t get it, I don’ know why the pain is getting so bad, but all I know is, it is getting worse every few days!
One of the stories came to me at 3:30am on Tuesday; a Christmas fantasy in Christmas tradition and that took me two hours to write by hand, the next day my hand was swollen.
I wrote three chapters since to that project, but I wouldn’t call it hard work, because the chapters are small for me.
Usually I’d write 3k words in a day towards an interesting subject, this Christmas story is only around 1k at the moment, Paul reckons it looks like it could be a children’s book the way I am writing it, as it is very child friendly so far.
I love the story, but I am worried about how long it should be if it is deemed to be a children’s book? I don’t know… I am not known for writing specifically for children!
Paul thinks it could be a slightly larger than average children’s picture book, because he would like to see a lot of pictures in this story – I am uncertain personally.
I know the story has the potential to be very popular, but I am not confident on how to market this.
Anyway, thank you for reading and if I don’t post before then, have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Just a heads up…
Due to Christmas and a lot of medical appointments cropping up, I may not be active on this blog until late January-ish.
I have several tests to go through between now and early January, the GP is hoping that they can rule out cancer. But we do not yet know.
What I do know is, the recent examination, feels like it has aggravated the problem a little.
Until I know more about this situation, I am unsure how often I will be able to post on here.
