Whole Day

Typed in rest of 13th chapter and rest of chapter 2. Sorted out other chapters. Joined Skillpages and applied for a job writing a WWII time travel novel. Hang on a minute, isn't that what I have just done? Seemed to have lost chapter 3 but found it with chapter 4. Naughty chapter 3. So far I have typed in chapters 1, 2, 11, 12, 13 and Epilogue completely and bits of 3, 4, 5 and 8.

Sorting out

I have sorted out chapter 11 and the last chapter and most of chapter 12. Chapter 12 is very long and I need to tie lots of fragments together. Created and printed out cards (paper leaflets really) of the cover of The Crying Pennant and put details on the back of where to find it. Gave 3 away to the staff in Sainsburys. I don't know whether to put the Smashwords link on as well.

Did a little addition to Krunk the barbarian for #flashfriday. Typed in 250 words of GHW on my wife's iPad and sent it via email. Started to plan the cover of GHW, in McDonalds on the A64. Plan to do a sort of Victor comic book style. A tank (manned by Arthur and the others) and a weapon wielding Feldwebel. Also started thinking about the 5th book in the series.

The Ending

Typed in four pages of chapter 12 of Ground Hog War. Had a terrible lay in thinking about how to finish the ending. I think I know what to do now but it doesn't seem very exciting. I am going to walk into town today to get my son's application for a bus pass. I'll take some paper with me and see what I can write. Not enough money for a coffee so I might just go to the library.

Sittin' in a coffee shop (thinking what to write)

I wrote about another 800 words of Ground Hog war and finished chapter 12 (which is extremely long) and will probably need to write another chapter to finish the story, so started that. Wrote a bit more to Krunk the barbarian last night and will probably put that on for a #writerswednesday. Managed to type all of chapter 11 in on Friday and most of chapter 12 that I had written on Saturday. Over 11,000 words typed in about 14,000 to go. At the minute it looks like a true time travel jaunt with characters appearing for no reason caused by me typing part chapters in. I wonder how many people I would confuse by selling it as it is, typos and all?

Had bigger problems with the car. Found out we have a water leak from the back of the engine. Let's hope the mechanic can fix it tomorrow. So bus time until he does.

The Gold Raid

Have written the next bit of The Black Goblin but it isn't funny enough yet. I wrote over 500 words of GHW yesterday, I have nearly finished the book. On Saturday I put everything together I had typed and have done about 10,000 words.
 Had breakfast a tea and a coffee at all Hallows. Chatted to Brian about Cromwell. Got the CSI board game from a charity shop. It might give me some ideas for the next book, in the cowboy/detective dimension.

Went to the Christian cafe at All Saints. Wrote 200 words of TBG while at my daughters (dedicated it to her on Wattpad.) Twittered and tweeted when I got home. Watched episodes 11 and 12 of Warehouse 13. Wrote 220 words of GHW and 100 words of tomorrows TGA.

I wrote 300 words of GHW on Friday. Walked round Leeds with my son and looked at the games shops. The Christian bookshop has closed down. On Saturday went to the Board Games Club. Lost my hat on the way.
