So. It turns out I’m not too good at regular blogging.
I am powering ahead with the book (when my chosen nook in the library isn’t invaded by squalling toddlers called Darren as it was last week – “Darren, come here! Put the chair down, Darren! Darren!”) and overall the cosmic vibe is positive. I’ve dropped the working title ‘The Missing’ largely because the story grew out of it and partially because it was a bit… crap. I have another in mind, but I’m keeping it to myself.
I’m also involved in an exciting side project which should take off during the summer. I can’t give away too much – I’m a great believer in the power of fermenting secrets – but it’s something I’ve wanted to do ever since I was a wee Film Studies student too shy to make the necessary connections.
In the meantime, I have a new job! I’m an assistant editor. Enjoying it hugely. Especially the part where I get paid to eat at nice restaurants and pretend I’m not a reviewer. Tasty, tasty espionage.
