A nice, no wonderful, weekend spent doing nothing with DF curled up on the sofa watching The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series from the 90’s. I hated the novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, for me they were just unreadable to me. The old television series is just wonderful however. Acting, producing, and especially the costume design is just wonderful.
The amazing details on the clothing and sets have sparked an idea in the back of my head. It isn’t ready to share yet. It’s a very strong idea however, one that over the coming weeks I need to flush out in my head fully and then see if I can make it work when I write it our. But I can share that it has been inspired by our long weekend cozies up on the soda with Holmes and Watson.
That glimmer of an idea can come from anywhere lately for me, some stronger than other. This one is incredibly strong, trying to push out the book I’m in the process of writing. There’s a literary war going on in my head at the moment, which one wins? I will undoubtedly be quite a struggle but hopefully the end result will be two amazing, fantastic stories.
