Any old irony

There may be a deleted scene later: I want to be able to fit it into the book, but most of what it does has already been done elsewhere and it’s not really progressing the plot. Alternatively I might asset-strip it and use the bits elsewhere. Being a writer: not unlike being a rag-and-bone man, except that you have to be your own Harold and your own Albert Steptoe.

Meanwhile, in the ongoing comedy that is my writing life, today I actually cooed aloud ‘Awww, who’s my little psycho?’ at the screen, and then realised that I could have meant almost any of the principals and also one of my cats who was sitting on the spare room bed staring balefully at me.

Finally, an extremely wise article from Kristan Hoffman about focusing on what matters.

    Oh, you temptress 😉

    Those are wise words indeed – while I would love for you to get a publishing contract and earn more money from your writing (because you’re talented enough to do so and because I’d love more people to discover your work), the fact that you don’t have those yet doesn’t make your books any less enjoyable or your characters any less close to my heart.

    • Aww, thank you!

      Eh, if it happens it happens and if it doesn’t it doesn’t. I suspect that whether I try looking for an agent for whatever I write after Heavy Ice will depend on what that project is, and at present I have no idea. 🙂
