So, been a while I know but things happen and things get in the way.
Because obviously you've all missed me geet loads I thought I'd do a quick summing up of stuff. Or a conclusion if you will to the month that's gone.
Conclusion # 1: I May Not Be As Crap I Thought I Was...
Having pondered on it, swore at it, rewritten chunks of it and then swore at it some more I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that maybe, just maybe, Novel No.2 may not be awful.
In fact I even like some bits of it. I like the pathologist and the fact that he hands people bloody scalps and eats his sandwiches as he works. I like furniture melting parts and, actually, I'm quite pleased with the ending too. So, you know. That's nice.
I'm still waiting to hear from Tonto Towers though and that'll be when I decide properly I think. I have faith in Tonto, if they like it then I think that'll be a sign that I've done ok. If they don't... Well... Anyway I even winged it off to an agent for a laugh. Six weeks for a reply? Three months for a reply? Whey nah! Try twenty four hours, oh yes. A response, from an agent, within twenty four hours. Now that was unexpected.
Course, they were writing to tell me that they weren't "100%" confident about it but still. I'm impressed they got back to me that quick.
Conclusion # 2: In Retrospect I May Not Survive The Zombie Apocalypse.
Yes. An important factor that I failed to consider here really and one I should probably put right now in case you were all planning on coming and sharing my tinned carrots come The End.
I live next door to a graveyard.
And there is another one two streets down the hill.
And a massive one across the road from that.
So don't bother, I'll probably be the first to go. Having said that though I do still sport a limp from a cruciate problem I'm having so don't shoot me just cos I'm walking funny, please take a moment to make sure that I'm actually after your brains before you take me out.
Which sort of leads me nicely into,
Conclusion # 3: The Most Lovely Vix Has A Brilliant Brain.
Now, before she yells at me, I already knew she had a genius brain. And a crazy sort of brain. And yes, I was already largely aware of the brilliance of it before this. But. But now she's showing it off in new ways and it's really rather cool.
So I hope she won't be too mad at me for telling people to go look at her brain and wonder.
Go Here, Here and Here.
as well as Here
and be impressed. I was.
She be kick ass cool, how.
Why I wrote Disraeli Avenue for charity - The houses on Disraeli Avenue all looked the same, the same shape, the same size but behind each coloured front door there was a story, a secret, a need....
