Delayed weekend post because here in the UK it’s a Bank Holiday Monday. I think Sunday was Whit Sunday. What this actually means in Christian belief terms, I have no idea. It’s just a Sunday however many weeks after Easter Sunday that gives me an extra day off and loads of school kids a week off for half-term. The only things I have to mention are two half-news bites, things that may or may not be coming up in the future.
The most likely thing to appear that’s news related is something to do with 25 Ways To Kill A Werewolf, and in the next month or so. Yes, that’s as good as that gets. Well, not quite. I’m hoping we’ll be sorting out a publishing date for later in the year and then there are some related matters to mention.
The other half-news is to mention that the first draft of A Pack of Lies continues. I’m about a fifth through the projected length, so it bodes well. I’ll not be jumping up and down about it being a workable story until I make it to the end, though. There’s something about doing follow-up stories that make me very nervous about committing to them. Maybe because so many stories turn out to be unworkable or tail off. You only have to have a flick through some of my Site Diary comments to realise that a few projects I thought were a big deal fell over and never got back up again. With a story that follows on from another, I just get so nervous about whether I’m capable of finishing it. Although the problems that kill a piece are as much about the constantly juggling multiple interests (WIPs, work, fencing, whatever) distracting me from just sitting down and getting it done.
