Just Another Week Blah Blah
The blah, blah, being where the heck has it gone. I'm sure it was only yesterday that I posted last weeks blog only to find that was ten days ago. Still no news from the agent, but I don't expect to hear from him for another week or so.
In the meantime, Susan and I have been re-watching Dark Angel the James Cameron TV series from 2000. Season one is really good, every episode working for a living with little or no padding of note. The second season is still good but reverts to standard TV show tropes of having a Halloween show that really doesn't add much. Saying that the second half of season becomes tighter and overall I'd say if you haven't caught this show it's well worth watching.
Writing wise I've been plugging away on the second draft of Ghost Dog. Over the last ten days I've sorted through and revised 23,500 words, which isn't bad, and this takes me up to 63,848 out of the running total of 95,317 words. So the end is in sight. My plan, after finishing, is to let it rest while working through the Beta reader comments on Strike Dog. So I have plenty of work on my plate.
I've also finished my Elementary Introduction to Archery course and was given a Certificate of Merit, which means when I go next week I will be standing on the grown-ups shooting line. I've been really enjoying learning how to shoot a bow and the bug has really bitten i.e: thinking about how to improve my form and, more to the point, wanting to go shoot some more arrows.
And yes, one day, in a yet to be written story, there will be shooting of arrows (actually as my Beta readers will attest there's already been a scene referring to the shooting of arrows already) so I will now be able to write a convincing description of shooting arrows when the time comes.
As always, thank you for reading and catch you all later.
