What Jimbo Did…

…since last he blogged.

1. I completed Script Frenzy in 22 days. When I feel brave enough to show it to the world, you’ll be the first to know. But for now, this mish-mash of hallucinogenic, bleary-eyed, caffeine-riddled garbage is staying under lock and key. It seriously isn’t worth reading; but it served its purpose. Because of this exercise…

2… I completed the first draft of my novel, The Dark Crusade of Robinson Stone. 18 months in the writing, it’s been put to bed for the rest of this month. It needs some hard revision and editorial work. I know what needs to be done. Read it on WEbook, while it’s still there.

3. I got my hair cut because…

4. I went to Galway for a romantic weekend with the love of my life, Mary. (Cue happy sighs.)

5. I quit smoking…for good.

6. I updated my Facebook status three times a day, even when I was in Galway.

7. I contemplated quitting my job at least once a day.

8. I wondered why I wasn’t blogging, even though I had tonnes of ideas.

9. I fell in love with Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor.

10. I fell in love with Karen Gillan as Amy Pond, The Doctor’s companion.

11. I fell well and truly in love with Mary. (Cue more happy sighs.)

12. I created a new character: Tara Kane, PI. (More on her at a later date.)

13. I’ve rediscovered Leslie Charteris’ Simon Templar, AKA The Saint. God, if only I could write that well.

14. I made a deal with God. Enough said!

15. I made a promise to myself to blog more often.

Your servant,

James the first-time novelist.

  1. That is an impressive list, Jimbo!

  2. You did have an impressive list, but #5 impresses me the most. You won’t ever be sorry. You made a promise and stuck to it and I am very proud of you!!Whatever else you do is going to be a cinch!!

  3. Gee Wiz! You have had quite the amazing april!

    Good on you for 1, 2, 4, 5….you know what, good on you for all of them.

    In regards to Robinson Stone: when you are on your world tour to promote the book, and it’s already on the best seller list in every major city of the world, and you stop over in Australia, I hope I’m on the list of people to see. And I demand you bring Mary.
