The husband and I are trying to 'do' a book together. I say 'do' rather than write as I am doing all of the writing - but he's got a really important role - he's helping me devise a great plot.
I figure he's the perfect candidate... He has a little time off, he's smart, loves books, has a good imagination and is male. The last point is of particular interest to me as I want to write a fantasy/sci fi story that will appeal to both boys and girls. Plus he has a degree in physics and can tell me when the sci fi goes waaay past the possible limits and turns into... er... 'fi'.
Then I just have to get my butt in the seat and start writing. I thought that I'd relish a couple weeks off after finishing my non fiction kidsGo projects, but I'm eager to get back into the swing of things - and it's lovely to not have to do tons of research too.
