After a long month and plenty of determination to succeed, I have finally achieved over 50K on my new novel, ‘Paint The Sky‘.
Throughout December, I will complete the story.
There are gaps to fill, dialogue to re-write and lots of love scenes to pad out.
Not sure why I skipped those!
Inspired by Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night‘ painting and Don McLean’s ‘Vincent‘, my story tells of the developing love between artist, Vincent (Vin), and would-be writer, Ben. Told from Ben’s perspective, the first chapters trace the early stages of their romance. Each chapter is titled after one of Vin’s paintings, and part of the storyline within each chapter includes reference to that painting.
