I know, I know, I should be beavering away, churning out the pages of my new bestseller – oh, by the way, I think I am up to four sales so far on Raiding Cúailnge, not counting the two I made myself – and the fact that I didn’t do any writing at all on the day after Raiding Cúailgne made its debut, despite having publicly sworn to do so here on this blog, should make me feel guilty.
However, the truth is that I couldn’t sleep (for the excited anticipation of Hollywood calling?) the night before my novel entered the world of readers and I got up and started to scribble in a notebook and then swapped over to the computer and banged away at about two or three different scenes before going back to bed and sleeping until late that morning.
Anyway, I haven’t done any other writing since and I don’t feel bad because I have the perfect excuse for not doing anything. I mentioned a while back about a distinction between horizontal and vertical writing. Well, I’ve decided to go vertical again and if it takes me another dozen years, I don’t mind!
