…getting distracted by my mid-life crisis, obviously. It’s already almost a week into Camp NaNoWriMo (how did that happen?) but I don’t have a great deal to say about that, so we’ll come back to that later in the month shall we? First things first though, did I get much done in the last few weeks?
Er, not much. Not fiction anyway; I did manage a blog post over at Christian Geek Central about Doctor Who, so that’s a bonus. As far as stories are concerned, I think I got too caught up in the big edit-frenzy that is Camp NaNo and spent my writing time trying to get ready for that.
April’s writing time has been given over to the next edit/rewrite stage of Bootlesquith Manor. To date that has consisted of slashing 5,000 useless words, and putting the remaining chapters in a more sensible order. The detail editing will probably start tomorrow.
I desperately want to get on with the Ambivalence Chronicles, but at the moment I’m trying to figure out whether or not it will have some loose connection to Bootlesquith Manor. I suspect it might, but how obvious – or indeed relevant – that becomes is still a mystery.
Bootlesquith Manor. Or at least, the story which is currently going by that alias, for reasons which may or may not be explained later. Needless to say I missed the March deadline for Writers of the Future, but there’s always next quarter, assuming Bootlesquith Manor gets finished.
So that’s what I’ve been up to; now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to camp.
