Sunday, August 13

It appears two weeks have gone by since I last blogged. Very sorry about that.

Finished my chapter this afternoon, anyway. I am reasonably pleased with it.

Anyone wandering types who'd like to read, please email

Only about 7,000 words left to write on the project. Plan to launch into my Dante chapter as soon as possible.

    Good going on finishing the chapter, bud. I won’t pretend that I’d have enough of a clue to be a useful reader, so won’t offer, but I’m glad to hear you’re getting closer to that 36,000 word target.

    “Oh. I… wonder how it works?”




    Gav, I cannot apologise enough for what happened yesterday - I believe you know that. But it does occur to me that - in spite of the tragic mix-up—I didn’t think to thank you for the finest gift you could have given me: another entry in my catalogue of Larry David-inspired instances of catastrophic social faux pas. So for that, Gavin, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

    “What? Why do i have to feel guilty?”

  4. Oh, and Kriss - cheers for the sentiment. And you might try to extricate yourself from the obligation of proofing for me - “I’m sure I wouldn’t be useful,” right—but be warned: I won’t let that stop me from sitting you down and making you pour over all sixty pages of what I’ve written unless you tell me honestly that you don’t want to.

    Evil genius… fine! I will gladly proof-read what you’ve written, but on the proviso that you keep me well supplied with tea and possibly some kind of biscuit. Currently I’m leaning towards a cruncy chocolate-coated Hobnob, but be warned, this is quite likely to change so don’t go thinking you can be prepared. I’ll keep you on your toes, Fielding.
