SKOSS 2, Diary Entry 27

Yesterday was not the greatest writing day. I’d planned to do two solid hours, which would usually amount to a comfortable 1000+ words but I ended up sitting in front of the computer, out of dull stubbornness more than anything, for four hours, until I clicked over...

SKOSS 2, Diary Entry 26

So MANY things are changing so quickly that it’s impossible to know how stories will be told ten years from now and so I think it’s a great idea to try new things, to accept that the novel is on it’s way to being fully dead, if it’s not fully dead already. A new way...

Tania and I caught up with the Truce Films crew last week to read over their script treatment, meet scriptwriter Gordon Napier (a really nice guy) and see how the Reservoir Dad movie was progressing. The brief five page script description sounds really great and there...

Editing Some Kind of Superstar, Series One

Some Kind of Superstar Series One is with an editor and I had my first fortnightly meeting with her last night. She’s sending me through the previous two weeks of editing before we chat so that I can read it over and comment, is developing a style sheet as she...

Holiday Writing Desk

Holidaying for the weekend in Hall’s Gap for a fun Lama Experience to celebrate Archie’s twelfth birthday. A little wine. A dark space in the corner of the cabin. A new writing...

SKOSS 2, Diary Entry 24

Yesterday was tough. I was writing about 300 words an hour but somehow managed to fit in three full hours anyway so ended up hitting the 1000 word target before getting to bed. I don’t know what makes for a slow day of writing. I can go into it feeling okay and...

SKOSS 2, Diary Entry 23

Friends around Friday night, kids sports over the weekend and a heavy focus on preparing for Tyson’s birthday party means that I haven’t written since Thursday, have hardly thought about the book really, but I’m okay with it, reaching my minimum word count – 5000 –...
