IF I LAUGH is the working title of my novel.
The premise: A young single mom and failed hippie returns from a midwifery-farm collective in the 1970’s to her suburban family home and forms the first all-ladies comedy club in her parents’ garage.
Designing Principle: Force a suburb-hating idealistic young earth mama in the 1970’s to confront the lack of equality inside her cherished community on a farm collective.
I’m finished with the outline and starting the first chapter and one of the other chapters.
I’m enjoying the process of writing more than I usually do, because I’m letting my creative urge lead the way. I love writing three different stories in three different forms (screenplay, novel, graphic story) that spring from the same story world and character web.
How is your creative flow going?
