Going to try this again


I seem to have a problem with keeping these things up. Still, I think it's worth another go.

So hopefully this marks a Brave New World in internet blogging from yours truly. Although, probably not. After all, I've been trying to write the same novel since August 2003, which is now the wrong side of five years ago (5!). If you're not coming out the other side of that with either Ulysses or some sort of transmogrification device, you probably should take a long hard look at yourself.

Fortunately, I like what I see, and everything else, I look at from behind my fingers.

So, going to have a go at the '3 chapters, synopsis & cover letter' strategy this week. I'm hopefully going to do a postal blitz by Friday, which means that the rejection letters should start appearing by June, or some equally ridiculous month that isn't right now, or better, yesterday.

I haven't even finished the sodding thing yet.

Honestly, though,
I have been doing other things in that time: had my second child, bought first home, got married, worked some good and some not-so-good jobs, and of course, had some terrifyingly pretentious haircuts.

(I should point out that I was aided in the first three achievements by someone else. Fortunately enough).

So. I'll post more news as I get it. Or at least, when I'm next avoiding bedtime.
