Change of project

Standard

Hi everyone,

Sorry I didn’t get around to posting again during the week – I’ve still been a bit under the weather. For several days, I didn’t write anything, which I’m a bit upset about, and on a few other days I just wrote some fanfiction for  a Les Miserables week on Tumblr. But the important thing is that I haven’t stopped writing completely!

Over the last week or so, I’ve switched focus from the sequel to Submerge – a series I think I finally need a bit of a break from  so I can recharge – to A King’s Ransom, which is still new and shiny and exciting!

Over the last two weeks, I’ve written 4814 words. Hopefully I’ll be back on form this week…

Talk to you soon!

A flying visit

Standard

Hi everyone,

I’m not very well – I felt so grotty yesterday that, for the first time this year, I didn’t write a single thing all day – so I’ll be back to update this blog some time in the week. Sorry!

Talk to you very soon!

Just in time…

Hi everyone,

I am really bad at this regular blogging thing. Apologies. This is just going to be a flying visit because it’s been a mad week and I am exhausted.

In the last week I have written 4899 words, for a total of 29331 this year. My Thursday project was A King’s Ransom, of which I think I have now written the whole prologue! Other than that, I’ve been working on Sprawl – I have now reached chapter 12 of an estimated 22, but might switch to a different primary project (either A King’s Ransom or Father Didn’t Dance, in all likelihood) for a little while soon. We’ll see how I feel when I come to write tomorrow!

Talk to you all soon!

Paperbacks + a change of plan!

Standard

Hi everyone,

Well, I’m sure you’ve noticed that, once again, it is not Friday. I seem to be having trouble remembering to post on a Friday, so I’m going to move my weekly blog to Saturday in the hope that it will be easier to fit in. I apologise if it does jump around a bit, though – life can be a bit hectic at the moment, so I have to try to fit things in where I can.

On to word counts and projects! I have written 5282 words over the last week, most of them on Sprawl, my hopeful Submerge sequel, which I’m about halfway through. On Thursday, I took a break to work on An Englishman’s Home. I wrote a total of 22036 words in January, which is about half of what I’d usually write in a NaNoWriMo month and probably a lot more than I would have written without my 500 word goal. So far this year, I’ve written nearly 24 thousand words (not including the odd bit of fanfiction)!

I’ve also finally finished proofreading the paperback edition of Submerge, which is very exciting. I know several people wanted to read the book but prefer tangible books to the e-versions, so with a lot of help from Manifold Press, I have now got it sorted out. I’ll be releasing the book for sale on the 7th of February, so watch this space for a one-off blog post then!

Talk to you soon!
