Just thought I would add a new post tonight - even though it is already almost 11pm and I should be heading off to bed. Got some good news earlier this evening - the Editor is pleased with the redrafted Article, so that bodes well. Just trying to sort out an accompanying photograph then hopefully I will find out when it is likely to be published.
The Book ??!!?? (What shall I do...?)
The Epic? Going GREAT GUNS - estimnate I am at almost 7000 words now and still srcibbling madly. Only been writing it for a fortnight so guess that isn't too bad. I am finding I get most done at Caffe Nero's in Sutton - so love working in those places - and also during Lunch at the Day Job. Got a little tip by the way for any aspring writers passing through. You know how sometimes, short excerpts of books already published sometimes appear in writing magazines? Or you catch a page of something in a Kindle advert? Well next time you are feeling Blocked (as in Writers Block, not a blocked nose), then find a pen and some paper and write a short excerpt straight out of your head. Believe it or not, several months before The Epic came into being, I actually did this when I heard a couple of my yet-to-be-invented characters chatting in my head one day. Furthermore, even though it took me several months to actually get started, I am convinced that Excerpt is what actually set the Creative Wheels in motion. I don't even know if that short piece will actually make it into The Epic. But the two characters certainly have, so it is a good exercise.
Better go. Keep yawning and getting up before 6 tomorrow. Good Writing, Each!!
