First Draft Complete

Finally typed the final words of the first draft of my second novel. The first one was a bust, but this time round I’m determined to whip this baby into shape.

Now the real work begins.

Just started reading this and it’s off to a rollicking start. Makes me feel a little patriotic, all this Aussie noir.

Took Me Long Enough

Researching all the pulp fiction markets out there right now. Very happy to discover that the world of pulp is far more plentifully populated since the last time I wrote any. Feeling more than a little inspired.

In no particular order, BEAT to a PULP, Shotgun Honey, Crime Factory, Needle, Noir Nation, and of course, my old fave, Thuglit.

I might need a new chair soon, for I will be firmly planted in it, wearing that sucker out.

Back In The Chair

I started a novel in October 2006 that was a mix of crime and horror with a large portion of the story set in 1920s Sydney. I worked on it solidly for two years and reached the climactic scene and then spent about four and a half years writing ten pages.

Last night, I wrote a thousand words. The first draft should be finished soon.

Sometimes it takes a while to finish things I start, but I always get there in the end.

Bit of background for you: back in the good old…
