Author Tracy Williams, also known as The Naked Blonde Writer, has received a bursary from Literature Wales (formerly known as Academi) to write her second novel under the working title of Insomnia: Doctors & Drug Dealers. The bursary is for a six month period, during which time Tracy hopes to produce a first draft of 120,000 words. She has been researching the novel for the past three years. The story is vaguely autobiographical, loosely based on the author’s personal experience of lifelong chronic insomnia. The confessional content of the narrative will, however, incorporate vast amounts of fiction and be rendered in satirical and allegorical form. Tracy’s creative vision for the book is to achieve an aesthetic similar to that of William Burroughs’ Naked Lunch.
