A Feeling in my Bones

Naturally, as The Scarlet-Gypsy Song nears an end I begin to think of my Next Project. The Traveler will not be it. That book is a fanciful, whimsical book--it shall not succumb to being pinned down as a W.I.P. It wants to be worked on in spurts and darts and dashes and so it shall. Madeleine is not thrashed out, nor is Rockingham Shambles. I am not done with research for my French Revolution novel. So what's next? What will jump forth from my pen in the months to come?

I am not certain yet.

I am not certain, and yet I have a sort of Feeling in my Bones. This feeling has nothing to do with children, strangely enough. It has everything to do with this:

And this:


And this:


And this:


And this scribble I did up last Fall.

I have an idea something precious might come out of it all. :)

Oh, oh, oh, that dress in the second picture... a RED typewriter... and Gregory Peck! Squeal!

This is going to be splendid, whatever it is. Without a doubt.

Please do give us an update when you decide more about this WIP!

I have a feeling in my bones that it's going to be an amazing story. Do post more, when you know.

Oh, and by the way, what is Rockingham Shambles? I don't think I've heard about it except in your snips post and it sound delightful.

@Everyone, thanks for the enthusiasm! I began writing it officially (and who knows how far it'll go) this afternoon.

@Maria Elisabeth, Rockingham Shambles is a nothing at present--just a scene spoken by the Butler, Hobbs, about My Lord and Lady Sybilrude...it has no plot at present, but the name popped into my head and I knew I had to staple it down somehow. :D
