Life, the Universe and Everything

marvinThe subject of this week’s post is a little misleading. It’s nothing to do with the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, or even as the picture to the left may suggest, Marvin. He’s just there to help sell the misdirect.

No, it’s just more a way of pointing out how life, the universe and everything can find almost limitless ways to divert me from my task at hand, namely writing my next book. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the diversions, they’re just make me less productive.

BUT! I’m now on holidays until the end of the month so I can start to rectify that. I mentioned in my post last week how I’d had an idea for an FTW sequel, but was torn between continuing work on my WIP or starting that.

Well, I chose my current WIP (The Obsidian Witch). For about 5 minutes. Then I had an idea I really wanted to write down for the FTW sequel so I didn’t forget it.

1000 words later and I had pushed aside my WIP, fully distracted by this shiny new distraction.

Since then I’ve added another 1500 words or so, so it’s still in its infancy. I’ve got it all plotted out like I want it though, so now it’s a matter or filling in the blanks.

With that in mind that’s all for this week’s post. I really should get back to writing. I’ve spent all morning gardening and potting plants (aka diversions), so I should try to add a few words to the draft.
