When your first name is a poison, and your last name is a way of making people throw up, you have two choices: you can rebel against it, and become the sweetest, loveliest child in the world, or you can be evil.

            Antimony Lavage was evil. 

— The Dreadfully Deadly Plans of Antimony Lavage.

Here’s how it works:

1. Sign up for Nanowrimo.
2. Start working on your next adult novel. Have a title. Have a rough plot worked out.
3. Write 12 000 words.
4. Listen to Luscious Lyn read the first part of her new kids novel, The Adventures of Treckie Travers, to the family.
5. Go to bed.
6. Fall asleep.
7. Wake up with the entire plot of your new kids novel in your head and be unable to think of a bloody thing until you’ve actually got the beginning on paper.

And that’s how it’s done.


  1. That’s absolutely exactly how its done. No 7 happens so frequently I always have three or four WIPs on the go. I don’t know how people do it, the ones who say they write just one thing at the time.
