#Preptober is in full swing! I’ve started a Pinterest board for my prep for the novel that still does not have a working title. It’s not very sexy just yet, just a lot of maps and history. Imagine my surprise when I found out that my theory that Britain was originally attached to Europe is pretty much established scientific fact. Ha! I must have heard it somewhere during my education.

Apparently, when the polar ice caps from the last Ice Age melted, it gradually flooded the area leaving Britain separated from the mainland forever. My character/s will leave their home in Brittany to make a pilgrimage and they may never return home. They end up at Stonehenge, there’s a ring or something…

My Paris vision board is turning into a Celtic vision board!

I am really excited about this project. Doing the prep for this new story is great because I am learning something new every day. And surprisingly, it’s not set in Paris!

Creativity legends Dr Eric Maisel and Elizabeth Gilbert both recommend that we follow our curiosity when we are stuck or simply looking for a new path and I can attest to that.

As I touched on yesterday, I’ve been feeling as though I’ve been ‘contemplating my navel’ a little too much. Of course, I’m still doing daily meditation, journaling and yoga. Self-development is great but if we get caught up in it we run the risk of disappearing up our own butts.

IN other news…

I’ve had a hard copy of my novel Hotel Deja vu printed! Now to pore over it for typos and formatting errors and my paperback is close!
