Feeling flat and frazzled after the festivities? Lost your writing mojo somewhere in the wrapping paper recycling bag? Then why not try a glass or two of fiction fizz… the perfect pick-me-up for this time of year:
Fiction Fizz (serves 1)
1 fresh sprig of enthusiasm
a handful of new ideas
5-6 tablespoons of commitment
a dash of craziness
2 litres of blood, sweat and tears
magic sprinkles & glace cherries to garnish
1) Squeeze new ideas and blend until well combined. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 4-6 months.
2) Dilute to taste.
3) Serve in rose-coloured glasses and garnish with magic sprinkles and cherries. If you don’t have glace cherries to hand you could try signing with an agent or securing a dream publishing deal. Both of these are ideal ‘cherry on top’ alternatives.
