I’ve been so busy writing Before I was born, I haven’t done any ‘normal’ blogposts lately so here we are, here is one.
I’m very glad I got nagged into rewriting ‘Fish’ as I call it for short. The decision to post two chapters a week to discipline my writing time and editing is working very well so far. It is much more manageable doing it this way than to get carried away writing reams without being forced to go back and edit on a regular basis. It’s not often I say this but the naggers were right to persist and thankfully they aren’t too smug about it either.
Our snowy fortnight helped too. Pretty much housebound apart from a walk every day and the odd visit to the local pub, at last I could settle and concentrate with very little distraction. Actually there did happen to be some distraction in the form of my hobby photography. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you will have seen pictures of my feathered pal Billy Blackbird who now features on my photo blog Chillout pics plus a gallery of snowy scenes. Who can resist the white stuff?
As soon as we could see tarmac again and travel down the hill without sliding into abandoned cars, I worried a little about my enforced isolation coming to an end and how it would affect my writing time. Luckily it hasn’t so far. While I cursed the snow for affecting my business, the upside proved very helpful and my writing mojo has well and truly been kicked into action.
Come the next ice age (if we are not already in one); who knows what I might achieve?
When Before I was born eventually comes to an end on the blog, I hope to publish it as an eBook so keep an eye here for further details. I know some people would rather read it in that form, and it will happen eventually.
As soon as Before I was born is ready for publishing, it won’t be long before another eBook is on the way as I have almost completed the first draft. My challenge is to ePublish three eBooks this year so watch this space!
