Added another three pages at lunchtime which is a good thing. But, now my contact lenses are sticking to the eyes - which is a bad thing. Too much pc work in the office this afternoon I think. But, c'est la vie!

Two steps forward, one step back

I am making progress on the short piece. But. I don't like the way I've started it. The set-up seems a bit forced and willy-nilly so that's something that I'll have to change in the edits. Trying to get three people interacting with something approaching equal time, when they're all supposed to be getting involved with each other, is not as easy as I thought. One character seems to go into 'stasis' when the other two are talking so I'm going to have to be aware of that and work to avoid it. Gaah! Mid February this is due! Although, if I miss that deadline I may be able to tweak it for submission in May. But I'm aiming for February, because if I move one deadline then all of the others go out of phase.

Mood: Tired. Nearly Friday!

Doctor Who: Season 3: Gallifrey

Progress is being made! I'm writing long-hand at the moment so will need to do a count later and then think about transferring everything onto the pc.

Still have a hacking cough (week 5...not funny) but it's better than it was so I can't really complain. Hang all viral infections for they sucketh mightily!

I have a new avatar...this is me, in Lego.

Quick Check-In

This is just a quick post to reassure anyone who reads this blog that I'm still here! Christmas and the Grim-Hanging Disease meant I haven't done much of anything for a while and am just now starting to catch up on a few things now that I'm feeling a bit better!

Done most of the notes for Rapunze (working title) and just need to work on the outline and then start writing. Once that's done, I'll get back to Kieran's story, as well as working on a couple of flash pieces. Business plan for 2008 is done - optimistic, but hopefully not over-confident!

Happy New Year to all!
