I have been enjoying a blessedly restful summer…
Although much excitement lies just ahead! I cannot wait to see the second Deathly Hallows film. I shall be steaming my frock coat soon and ironing my cravat.
I am waiting until I have seen it to begin work on my next book of essays, The Severus Snape Paradigm: Outcast, Rebel, Hero. I have no doubt that the film will be a tremendous source of inspiration.
In other news, I have started working on a novel, which will be called Outlaw in the Land of Perfection. I am feeling very inspired by this project. My Big Black Notebook is no longer empty; I am jotting down character names, physical details, personality traits, and so on…
I am doing this in conjunction with work on Blessed: how to be a joyful mystic.
There is never a lack of things to do in my sanctuary.
The novel will take place in a sort of dystopian steampunkish future and involve an oppressive theocratic system. It will be about love, hope and freedom. The main character is a woman named Kristopher Silverheart -the Reverend Kristopher Silverheart, renegade peacekeeper and freedom fighter. It will feature things like motorcycles that jump into other dimensions, Nebula Pistols, another female character called Heaven, an opponent called Commander Mattaeus…
It should be fun!
So, a lot of writing this year and next. I shall try and see if I can make more prayer beads, but I am stretched a little thin at the moment with all these literary projects, not to mention the possibility of another lecture re: Ascendio 2012.
Oh yes, and in a few weeks I shall be getting a beautiful image of Professor Snape tattooed on my upper left arm, with the word “Always” underneath. There will be photos.
