Life, it seems just continues to get in the way of my writing. Which, I suppose is infinitely better than Death interfering, but it’s still incredibly frustrating.
So – no more excuses. Time to prioritise and get the finger out. Here’s a wee update of where things are at:
Writing a novel is far harder than banging out a memoir type thing. Especially if it’s meant to edge towards the humorous side. Some days, it flows and everything seems to fit. Until the following morning and I look at it again. Other days, it doesn’t even get that far.
The first few chapters have been rewritten completely, and I’ll shortly be posting them to a couple of writing sites for some honest feedback.
I’ve not done any promotion at all in 2016, but sales keep dripping through. I’m still keen to get a foothold in the USA, and plan a couple of little initiatives shortly.
From what I’ve read, however, it seems that ‘Damp Dogs & Rabbit Wee’ has sold better than the average debut book by indie authors. So, a big “THANK YOU” to everyone for their support so far.
There are SO many excellent writers out there whose books are not (at least, not yet) available in your local bookstore. In the coming weeks, I hope to introduce a few to readers of this blog. You will not be disappointed, I guarantee.
That’s it – I’m off now to be distracted by some other random nonsense.
