Yes, dear reader…
The madness is approaching. The month of November when tens of thousands of idiots – I mean writers – will attempt to write a book in one month.
It may not surprise you that I shall participate again. Hopefully with more success than last year as that story… well, lets not dwell on that.
This year I’ll embark on a daredevil’s journey: I plan on not one but two stories; an English one and a Dutch one.
The English story will rub elbows with the Hilda books. Ah, yes, now I have your attention!
This story will be about Hilda’s bestest girlfriend. Those who follow the series will know that Babs left Hilda’s hometown of Rompford for a while.
This book will attempt to tell what she did and saw during that time. Because Babs already talked a bit about that in some of the previous Hilda-books I need to go back in history and retrieve all that to make sure all the facts are factual and true to Babs’ recollection.
The Dutch story is going to be a new adventure. A story about a girl who discovers an intriguing book and becomes… you may have guessed it… a witch. No, she’s not going to be the Dutch Hilda. Nor is this going to turn into a series. That being said I should shut up now because Hilda’s first story originally wasn’t meant to become a series either and look at what we have now. 😉
I’ll do my best to keep you current on the progress of my mad, double book, double language enterprise.
This is going to be an exciting month to write!
