First Excerpt from The Story of Ondine

I’ve been so busy these past few weeks writing away. It feels like a giant explosion of words has just melted out from my brain. I’ve not written much of anything but the odd one-liner, blog posts and journal entries for such a long time. I’ve missed it. I really must write more.DSC_0186

I don’t know if it’s any good yet. I’m still in the first draft stages and still need to write a huge chunk of middle bit, but it’s oh such a glorious process.DSCF1080small

If Ondine is as successful as I hope it will be, I’m definitely going to write a story for every single collection I do. Oh joy!!

Anyway….. thought I’d share with you a little sneak peek at part of the story.

He watched in astonishment as the glistening bubbles in her saliva solidified around the knot and the string set in silver.

“Okay, you really have to tell me all your secret now!”

Still a first draft, so it will most likely change! But, what do you think? Would love some advice?!!
