I’ve taken a week off work to write. 9 days with the weekends either side. Amazing feeling of freedom. A glimpse of the way things were back when I was 26 and took off 5 months to write God Seed. Day 1, Saturday, was a mellow start. Did nothing but drink coffee, read and walk around the harbour. Then settled down with a bottle of vino and Salem’s Lot for 3 hours whilst the rain pounded the windows and the wind howled around the house. Perfect way to spend a Saturday I reckon. Day 2, Sunday, early morning walk around the harbour to make the most of the sun before the rain came back with a fury. Spent the rest of the day up here in the Sky Bunker working on a new short story: Jentog Ma’nes. Aiming to finish it today. That makes 12 in 5 weeks. Not bad. I’ve got a few stacking up that I’ve yet to put out so watch this space.
