So, I’ve been clearing the decks, ready to start writing my next faerie story. The plan is to start writing tomorrow. The last couple of days has been about tying up loose ends of other projects and about starting the process of bringing The Merrow Of Murlough Bay to life.
There is one loose end that is still waiting to be tied up though. It’s been waiting to be tied up for a while.
If you remember, I started writing a collection of haiku poems back in August. The aim of the collection was to track the turning of the seasons from summer into autumn. I decided that the last haiku would be written when the first frost appeared.
So, I’ve been waiting for the first frost for some time. These past few weeks, I’ve been jumping out of bed every morning to take my dog for a walk. I couldn’t wait to get outside just in case the frost had come. It just never came!
And today it arrived : right on time. Everything is tidied away now until my story is done. I’ve a bit of juggling to do with coaching clients, but I definitely have the space to get that merrow’s story on its way 🙂 .
I read my haiku out in today’s video blog : it’s called First Frost. You can also read it here.
I am just going outside and may be some time.
