OK, I’m hitting the wall here … I’m on Chapter 9, thanks to a very late night session last night, but I’m still not happy with the way things are going and even if I romp home with the last two chapters, I’m going to have to go back and put the first five into the first person, after Frith won the battle for control of the story so spectacularly last week.
In addition to which, the copy edits for Time’s Echo arrived yesterday and I have to write an illustrated talk on medieval shipping, a subject about which I know … er, not very much at all.
Everything has to be done before the 13th, which would be fine were it not for the fact that I have booked to go to London for the weekend before the RoNA Awards ceremony on Monday 5th March. I am so looking forward getting away, but it’s going to take four days out of my schedule, and there’s a lot of nail biting going on up here …
So, JFDI: I’m cancelling everything, turning off the internet after this, and restricting email checking to twice a day (if I have the willpower). Then I’m going to sit here until this book is done.
Wishing the rest of you a much more relaxing weekend – and if anyone out there has a picture of a medieval keelboat, please let me know!
