One Who Would a Writer Be.

Aaarrgghhhhh!

Hello Good People

Aaarrgghhhh!Who would a writer be?

I’m in the process of preparing two novellas for eventually going on to Kindle. The first, in comparison to the second, has turned out to be a doddle. The second – ‘SHADOWMAN’ – has turned out to be a nightmare. It has been ready to go for some months, but I decided to do one last proof read. DOH! It was the actual layout that was amiss. The left-hand margin was too wide, especially for Kindle. Then the sub-sectiontitles weren’t too well placed. Now, if I had learnt all about the laptop ‘How to do’ side years ago, I would have been fine. However, I went the ‘self taught’, with dictionary at my side route. It took around three hours yesterday. I was mentally knackered at the end of the first part, and will soon try and conclude matters today. The one good thing is that when both are sent on their way, it will be over; my writing, that is. I’m sure my much hassled friends will breathe a sigh of relief. I will then turn my attention to MIND’SFLIGHT. Good game, good game.

SWMBO has spoke!!

Hello Good People

As noted, She Who Must Be Obeyed (aka ‘Smiley’) has spoken! What do you mean ‘Disobey’? Who do you think I am, John Wayne!!

Things have been finalised. ‘PROMETHEUS ASCENDING’ and the final series of the ‘GEORGE’ stories are scheduled to go on Kindle in July/August; ‘SHADOWMANand ‘SHADOWS’ to go on around November/December, then that’s it. I have no more in my imagination box. My earlier writings may see the light of day on Kindle at a later date, as, when and if Smiley sees fit.

Talking of which, Smiley informs me that, in relation to my writings and Kindle, she is my ‘Back Office’. Oui, I heard that! No sniggering at the back!!

Also, I have to apologise for not answering ‘comments’ sent to me, but I have not, as yet, seen them. When I have, and if they have email addresses attached, I will do my best to reply.

That’s it.

PS: Any ideas as to how I can make known my writings on Kindle to the Great British Public (at minimal expense)?

IT’S DONE, IT’S DONE! NOW FOR SOME FUN!!

Hello Good People

It’s done. I’ve completed the full re-write of ‘SHADOWS’. 148-pages, just over 39,000 words. I won’t read it again for about two weeks. Sometime soon after, it gets emailed over to Smiley. Come the tail end of this year and it goes, hopefully, on to Amazon-kindle.

Now for some fun. To write the brief (4-pages tops) nonsensical tale, ‘GOB’. Joy, oh joy.

The End is Nigh

Hello Good People

My Mind’sFlight website has now registered 9,903 ‘hits’. I’m close to completing the re-write of my novella ‘SHADOWS’. So, sometime in June, my main work will be done. After which, I will simply be trying to find out who might have been making use of MIND’SFLIGHT.

That’s it. Enjoy your Mayday Bank Holiday.
