I have not been posting much on either ATW or my own small effort in the past long days as I have been working almost full-time on my book, and can now claim a day’s rest as it is Finished…Ended…..Completo, or whatever the words are in Serbo-Croat!
I commenced this novel some seven-odd years ago, and wrote steadily for some 130,000 words, but then had a really bad attack of ‘the Block’, due primarily to problems in my private family life. The uproar which was created put the ‘mockers’ on any creative task I set myself, and my novel languished on a hard-drive back-up for almost five years. But the spark lit once more, I am pleased to relate, and I hammered ever onwards until, with a word count of 217,000, I brought my hero to the first of his goals in his mythical world.
So rejoice, and raise a cup of coffee, or even a (small) glass of wine in honour of my bringing to fruition another book!
Now all I have to do is find an Agent, or a Publisher, and get the damn thing printed and on the shelves!
