    Default im thinking of doing another novella

    Ok, I've found myself with between a week and a fortnight to myself thanks to me herniating a couple of discs in my lower back, and I'm thinking of using the time where I can barely walk to write another quick novella, I wrote one a few years ago in a week and while it wasn't perfect (or even much good lol) I feel like I've got better since then, so I'm thinking of trying it again and doing another in a week. -but if its not done in a week im going to finish it properly last time i focused more on the "get it done in a week" rather than the story.

    It wont be a full 300page novel, I can write quickly but not that quickly lol no, it'll be somewhere between 80 and 100 pages so it'll be something to read in two maybe three visits to the toilet (or one if you're constipated lol)

    I'm thinking that if I do it, I may try doing in a different genre to the crime/thriller that I've tended to write in so far. I'm also considering trying something more light hearted and not so serious so I'm going to have a think about a story and see what I can come up with over the weekend.

    the only thing stopping me is that thanks to my back being a bit of a bastard I cant sit down so I'm alternating between laying on the floor and "walking" although I cant really call what i'm doing walking lol so I need to see how things go because if I can't sit down it makes it hard to be able to type when you're laying flat on your back lol

    If I do it though I'm thinking of doing like I did last time and uploading it to sell through the Kindle store but to make sure everyone gets a copy on here I'll make sure its free for the first week and it means I'll have some more up to date sales data to put in front of an agent/publisher

    I still can't sit down but I've managed to build a small frame out of cushions and small piece of mdf that means I can use the laptop while propped up on the floor, the living room looks like im building a fort out of the setee lol its a bloody good job its just me and the dog (who thinks the cushions being all over are great fun lol)

    I got started this morning and its going quite well fingers crossed I can do 5k words a day every day lol

    well I've written it, and now I need to read it and edit it and everything, I must say some members on here do feature as members of a forum in the book so when I get chance I'll post a list of who's screen names I've borrowed and if they're not ok with it I can change them

    No idea why, and slightly irrelevant to this tread, sorry casio, but when I read this I began thinking of the members I might use in a book and then I thought where is DET?

    Hope so mate, tell him he's missed
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.
