Book 7. Dormant.
Ah, Dormant… Done that’s it, that should be all I need to say. One of my absolute favourite books. Dormant is my editor Janet’s favourite book. This was an idea I have been toying with for a long time. I had this idea of touching the dead and being transported to someplace. The dark places this book takes you to are incredible and super unique. It is dark yet at all times you feel as if you are a drone overlooking the story and not just reading it.
Well, that someplace is Dormant.
This was one story that poured out of my head. I struggled to keep up with the ideas and I worked very long hours on making this happen. It seemed that even I as the writer was being led along and was completely unsure where I would end up.
I wish the story would have written itself but in a way, I was strung along by my brain. No, I was not possessed but I may as well have been. I had so much fun writing this that I honestly wasn’t sure where I would end up.
So as I said before, I know the beginning, middle and end of the story. The story arc is in my head, yet the in-between of it all in this book grew and grew very organically. It developed slowly and in a way that as the reader your mind is so messed up with who is where and what is happening that it only makes complete sense in the end.
Proud of this.
In many ways, I felt that this book helped me grow as a writer. I was the God of my little world and truly taking writing to another level. I was braver than before and felt very much at home in my Dormant novel.
Nothing can happen/improve without practice. This book felt as if I was taking myself to another place and another level of scary. While not a horror novel, it is one of fear and suspense with added terrifying bits. It also touches on life lessons and humans/humanity. I find that all of my stories have been some form of lesson. Agree or not there is something to be learned from each of my novels.
