I need to get back to my writing. With Christmas, and the family birthdays, New Year’s celebrations and all, I’ve been slacking. A friend noted how the Novel Progress Bar (right) hasn’t moved in several weeks. (A good friend who knows me very well).
It’s January; it’s time to knuckle down to some serious work.
So this afternoon, while browsing my old pictures on the new laptop, (this is not writing, I know, but you have to start the process somehow – at least I’m at my computer), I came across an image of my favourite Hopper painting. It reminded me of my current manuscript and a thought struck me:
I want my manuscript to be like a Hopper painting.
What I mean is that I want people to react to reading my words as if they were looking at a Hopper painting. I want it to be as stylish, as haunting and as sexy as his painting are.
