I haven’t done much writing today. Okay, I haven’t done any writing today, not on Yantsu anyway. I’ve written a couple of articles but most of the day was spent in town pushing though crowds of people doing their shopping for the Easter holiday. I have no idea why I chose this week to do the town thing.
I’ve wimped out of training tonight as well. I don’t feel great about it but I’ve been pushing on with a shoulder injury for quite some time now and the body is beginning to remind me that it needs rest sometimes too.
Now for the good news! It means I have lots of time to work on the final edit of Sanchin. I’ve been given some serious motivation to get on with it from Chris from the blog Kyokushin Kan. He likes what he’s read so far and he wants a copy of the book. He’s also given me a wonderful plug on his site – thank you so much, Chris 🙂 , so I’d better get on with it.
If you are interested in karate in general and Kyokushin in particular then pop over to his blog for a nosy. I’ve been following his posts for a while now as he documents his training. Very interesting stuff.
So now I have to face my deepest darkest fear – having a fellow martial artist read my work. As I’ve said on here before, writing a book that will (hopefully) appeal to a wide range of people is difficult.
I didn’t want to pitch the book only at karateka.I wanted it to have a much wider potential audience but in doing that there had to be a certain amount of author’s licence. There must be some sacrificing of realism in the name of drama. I hope I haven’t over stepped the mark.
