The Write Stuff

Right. Change of plan. Can't post any more of the story because I've just realised it's the beginning of a novel, and I'm in the mood for taking another swing at a novel. It just hit me last night and bang - stuff came together. There's 5,000 words there and it's screaming out to be the first chapter of a novel. I can have three sample chapters off to an agent in a few short months, if I set my mind to it.

So. A fast paced crime novel while at the same time trying to write a kids' picture book? Why not? Not to mention the other writing projects. (This weekend I'm writing a story about the stage adaptation of a kids book written by the princess of Japan... wacky shit, man).

Also, I officially have an agent starting the process of selling a magazine feature in the USA and the UK. I've had to send in a bio and PDFs of published work because they only deal with professionals... aaaahahahahaha... professionals and me.

Seriously though, I have to feel good about that and feel like I'm on a bit of a roll. After contacting the glossy here about copyright the editor suggested I write something for a new section they're running and I have the perfect idea. Have a couple actually.

So for the time being the blog will return to it's mostly normal program of silly twitterings and twatterings.

Congratulations on the agent selling your work. Good luck.

Thank you, Amra. I really want to make fiction as much of a priority as magazine writing. It's hard though.
