The days are whizzing by and I can’t believe Dreamrunner will be published next week! I haven’t reread it since I finished it as I’m looking forward to reading it once it looks all beautiful, plus the months-long gap will hopefully allow me to read it with some perspective and a degree of relaxation and enjoyment – at the end of the writing process it was all a bit hectic and by the time we’d done the copy-editing stage I think I knew every line by heart, but in the worst way: meaning I was kind of sick of it! Poor Dreamrunner, although I’m pretty sure it was the same with Breathing in Colour. Some writers do say that feeling sick at the sight of your book is a sure sign you’ve finished it… I just hope readers get something good out of it, it’s always so lovely to hear (or read) about someone enjoying the results of your hard slog.
People keep telling me to see Inception, which is about people sneaking into other people’s dreams, and, like Dreamrunner, it apparently focuses on the uncomfortable edges of the unconscious, with nightmarish scenarios. It looks a bit flashy-action-movie-ish to me but the premise sounds interesting and I will make a point of seeing it at some stage (maybe the DVD stage). For now, I’m gearing myself up to Dreamrunner and keeping my fingers crossed it’ll go down well J
