Mental lapse and novel update

Yep!  I had a mental lapse, and it happened when I set up this blog.  I had set up a load of links and then neglected to arrange for them top actually show up.  I’ve now corrected that oversight, so you’ll see these useful connections down the right side of the page.

While I’m on, a quick update on progress.  The novel is approaching 90,000 words!  I didn’t realise just how big it was going to be.  I should have known, though, considering the whole vision behind it.  In truth, it always had the essence of an epic about it.  I still don’t know the answer to the question: Is it a single book, or just the first in a series?  If it’s just the first, then I need to decide soon.  The question then will be whether to end this book before the climactic moment.  This is the price of not being able to plan everything in advance…  So many unanswered questions. And I still don’t have a final title for the book!

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
