3rd February, 2011

Just a flash in the pan today as we’re heading off to the SFX Weekender, and we’ve got some packing and organising to do! Assuming I can get a 3G data connection down at Camber Sands, I’ll do my best to keep the blog posts rolling.

Writing and editing
Yesterday was pretty tumultuous for a variety of reasons – as it was Groundhog Day I spent the morning with one eye on the live stream from Punxsutawny while trying to finish some day gig work before my days off. It was also day two of our boiler replacement, with the plumber and electrician using a variety of exciting and loud power tools downstairs all day… and then there were phone calls from New York (work) and New Zealand (parental birthday greetings), and a wodge of important emails to chug through.

So yeah, pretty busy. But I did manage to get within two pages of finishing the edit on The Wasp in the Lotus. I should be able to knock that off this morning before we head down south, so at least some of my beta readers (the ones not attending the SFX Weekender anyway) will be able to take a look at it.

Just a page or two of Firestarter as I had another dinner to go to. I know, it’s a hard life, right? No comics either.

Books: A page or two of Firestarter by Stephen King.
