…For the first year ever, I’m actually DOING NaNoWriMo. It’s scary and busy and means I have to actually concentrate and commit and lots of other words that begin with “c”.
I’ve decided to write a sequel to “Eddie and the Kingdom” for several reasons.
1: Someone asked me. Just one person, but you know, there’s such a thing as customer service and responding to your readership.
2: I had a bit of an idea for the story.
3: The first book was only 50,000 words or so, which is the NaNo target.
4: “Eddie and the Kingdom” was the first novella I ever wrote, and I wanted to see if I could do it faster and maybe even better. Eddie took a year or more. This first draft should be done inside a month (currently at 20,000 words after six writing sessions).
5: Everyone else and his Mum has a series. This way, I get to write book three next year and call it an “Eddie novel” or “A novel of the Kingdom”. Or “Marvel: The Guardians of the Galaxy Strike Back!” if I want to get sued into penury.
So that’s why I’m taking the time to write this post and explain why I haven’t got time to write any posts.
