Clear the decks

I’m not really doing NaNoWriMo except as a rebel as I’m revising Certainty of Dust ready for publication next year. I’m in the process of clearing the decks and getting it ready fora deep dive for a writing retreat run by the ever marvellous Meddwlcoed where previously I did a structural edit on it.

I took two boxes full of books to BristolCon and put them on the book swap table and yet I still have a shelf of books on my to get rid of pile – I swear they breed when I’m not looking. I also have around 40 books for WAWAW so that will continue for a few months yet. I expect to do a month’s end post covering this.

I have a pile of short stories I have yet to edit and submit that I’ll probably use as procrastination pieces when I want my subconscious to work on the novel.

Last week I got to see the inimitable Garth Merenghi on tour in a weird underground nightclub below Temple Meads called the Loco Klub

A suitably gothic location for the Archduke O’ Darkness!

I may relabel the blog as The Procrastination Diaries – I should be working on the novel…
