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…

Pete Sutton has a not so secret lair in the wilds of Fishponds, Bristol and dreams up stories, many of which are about magpies. He's had stuff published, online and in book form, and currently has a pile of words that one day may possibly be a novel. He wrote all about Fishponds for the Naked Guide to Bristol and has made more money from non-fiction than he has from fiction and wonders if that means the gods of publishing are trying to tell him something. You can find him all over social media or worrying about events he’s organised at the Bristol Festival of Literature. On Twitter he’s @suttope and his Bristol Book Blog is here: He's contributing editor of Far Horizons e-magazine which can be found here:
