Still working on the Theatre rewrite and yo yoing between turning it into a YA or reducing it to novella length. It changes by the hour.
I'd love it to keep it novel (YA) length, but I'm not certain the book would fit well with Grim or with the next two books I'm planning or perhaps with a large YA audience. I think it may be a small book. The first chapter starts in the trenches of WW1 but it's not a war book - well not an ordinary war book. There are teeny battles and there are soldiers but it's all rather surreal. I worry that starting in the trenches (and my MCs boot snapping a rat's neck) wouldn't appeal to teenage girls (and possibly teen boys), and anyone who is sucked in by the brief glimpse at trench warfare may be disappointed to find themselves in a surreal otherworld forty pages later.
I need to overthink.
I'm being impatient again.
Favourite new line of the week: "Dear, I do believe you left a speck of humanity on his left butt cheek," the old woman said.
Strange Googling of the day: Is buttcheek one word or two?
