Gosh if I had a penny for every time I’ve written an, ‘I’m back’ post on this blog I’d be able to retire and finally finish the second novel.
Seriously though, if you’re going to jump ship for a while, don’t do it straight after the ‘Happy New Year’ post. It does kind of date things instantly.
Anyway, I am back and I am writing again. I’ve poked the screenplay into the depths of my underwear drawer documents folder until I’ve learned to speak proper English – well, okay, British English (yes, there is a difference) – and Yantsu is my top priority again.
Top writing priority, at least. I also have a couple of art projects on the go. One of them is a big friendly hippo which I’m really keen to get started on.
I’m away at work until 1st Feb though so I can’t really start it yet. I don’t think a life-sized hippo head would go down too well on the train home.
Never mind, that leaves all of my down time at work for Yantsu. The first draft is basically finished and I’m on my first re-write. I suspect there might be a few major plot changes in the pipeline though, so this could take a while.
I’ll keep you posted. (Maybe)
