I know, ok?

5 February, 2008

I know.

Been a little ill, and not feeling like writing over the weekend. Nothing serious, just a bit of a cold, but enough that I’m even less able to concentrate than usual.

Soon, promise.

I’m back, baby!

28 January, 2008

Ok, so I didn’t do too well at the whole keeping writing thing. But, here goes another stab, and another new schedule.

As one of life’s procrastinators, I’ve noticed that, even with the two week schedule, it was the last weekend that saw the bulk of the writing being done. So, I’m stepping up to a post every week, but only a half sized one. With a bit of luck, I’ll keep it up this time (who am I kidding – I give me a fortnight).

Once a week, half an episode, starting now. Links on the right. Go.

Late Again

5 December, 2007

I feel the need to invoke someone far wiser than I will ever be – the late, great Douglas Adams – ‘I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by’

Yeah, so I’m having some problems again. Mostly of the procrastination kind, but I have also been poking at one of my novels. I’ll get there, I’m not going to make any promises on when, unless I get enough shouting and hollering to make me believe anyone is really reading this.

Shit

I really suck at this.

22 October, 2007

Yeah, missed it again. Got closer this time, though. Largely because of a lack of sleep last night – gave up trying and went downstairs at 2am and bashed out another thousand words. Hopefully I’ll be done tonight, have a bit of a check through and post it tomorrow morning.

Bring on the rubber chickens.

Nothing New

15 October, 2007

Yeah, ok, so I officially suck. New episode due this morning, no new episode posted this morning. And no real excuse. I did have to start again Sunday evening, as I realised I was writing a story that should come later in the series, but I was already way behind.

I’ve also been thinking about the comment posted by the mysterious ‘Anonymoose’, and am considering changing my schedule a little. He suggested 2k every week, but I’m thinking that’s a bit short for my liking. So I reckon I’m going to make the first episode a sort of double pilot episode, and aim for around 5k with the subsequent ones. I’ll be sticking with the two week schedule for now, so you will be getting less, I’m afraid. But I’ll also be writing less, which should a) Get me less stressed over it, and b) Give me more time to come up with stories and more time to edit them after.

I’ll be trying to get the next one in by next Monday, then back to the two week thing.

And if I miss it again, you have my permission to come and beat me with a rubber chicken.

Failed.

25 September, 2007

Well, you may have noticed that it’s Tuesday, and the first episode has yet to appear. Well, mainly due to my rubbishness, I failed to finish it in time. Still haven’t finished, in fact. So, I have made an executive decision and put it off until next Monday. I promised myself two weeks per episode, and this will allow me those two weeks for this first one. Which I guess is only fair.

And if it’s not there next Monday, feel free to come round and prod me until it is.
