I used to get really annoyed when I followed blogs and the writers stopped updating them for ages, then a new post would appear and claim life stuff had gotten in the way. And yet, here I am, months after my last post, about to use the same excuse.
A lot has happened. A lot.
The big stuff - a new baby ( a girl, gorgeous, very chilled), a new job (great ad agency, looking after lots of countries, working on exciting, big clients) and a new country (Dubai).
So yes, big life stuff but all exciting, all wonderful things.
On the book side of things, it's been slow. I'm on version 6 (I think) of He Who Fights but all that stuff above has impacted on my writing time but I'm hoping to have the latest version finished by December 1st - nearly a year after I finished draft 1. It's a very different book. A much better book.
Once finished though I have to begin the tedious task of getting another agent. Rob, the wonderful man who signed me up last July, has shut his agency to concentrate on writing himself. It's a shame on many levels, not least of all because I really enjoyed working with him and this book wouldn't even exist without him. His feedback, encouragement and support has been so helpful to me. I wish him all the best.
