Apologies in advance

Apologies in advance: this little ramble is a last minute substitution for a real blog-post. I had one written but I was never happy with it and… well, events have overtaken me.

I’m currently going through a period of doubt and uncertainty; my self-confidence has taken a bit of a battering recently and, in any case, what’s the point of writing (and, in the case of this blog, writing about writing) when the world seems about ready to slide into another wave of fascism?

Though it is of no significance whatsoever, I’m very busy right now. I have a whopping great manuscript to copy-edit, one which I’m going to struggle to hit the deadline for, and another four manuscripts in the queue for when that’s done. Which is great; means I’m keeping out of mischief and earning money all in one.

The bad side of the equation is that I’m not working on anything of my own. I really need to be; I have three novels that need a damn good editing and I feel like I need to be thinking about something new, as I finally got my last original idea down on paper not too long ago. The well is drawing dry; I need to refocus and refresh.

And that’s about all I have to say right now. Sorry to have wasted your time. Now go out and fight the good fight and I’ll see you back with more positivity very shortly.

Oh, and I still have a book out on sale and one for pre-order. Just in case you didn’t know…

  1. Stuff written against a background of the rise of fascism: C S Lewis’ interplanetary trilogy (the bad guys in That Hideous Strength get explicitly compared to the British Union of Fascists at one point). The Lord of the Rings. (An evil power, once thought defeated, is rising again. Will the good guys get their act together to effectively resist it?) Lots of escapism. More seriously, one cannot help one’s values coming through in one’s writing. If reading your book pushes people even slightly in the direction of decency, that’s good, isn’t it? Anyway, more power to your elbow.
