I'm still doing stuff. . . . But not here

OK I am a terrible blogger these days, but it does not mean I am not quietly working away in the background. One little project has been creating a bit of artwork for a friend who has written a book. It all sort of got delayed somewhat due to life the universe and stuff. This is one of the pictures for that book.

Due to all the delays I then thought  . . . . . . Hang on I reckon I could write a book, it must be easier than drawing pictures for a book, and so as I type I am about half way through it at about 60,000 words. It would help if I could type a little better than I can and also if I knew in a little more detail how it will end. All I know for certain is that Brian, Brenda and their Parrot will be OK and Inspector Clarke will end with a new fancy office and the possibility of a sequel.

Right folk it is time for me to go it is late here in the UK and I was up early this morning delivering things to my daughter.

  1. Good to see a post from you! Congrats on working on the book - I never know the ending (often I don't know the killer) when I start writing a new book. I just know all will be okay. Double congrats on doing the artwork for a friend's book!

    1. Thank you . . . Yes the book idea was the consequence of delays in my friends book. Neither of us have ventured into the world of publishing before and I must admit that creating the images for my friends book was an odd thing to do, normally I draw what I like, but when you find you have to draw a cat covered in candy floss or fighting a large bear it changed the way I worked. So I decided that maybe I should also write one where I can decide what happens when and where and to whom so that is what I doing. I also have discovered that the story is developing and has sort of created a life of its own, so as things stand I am not entirely sure how it will end. I do know though that at least one chap is not going to be happy if he makes it to the end alive.

  2. I figure that I am a semi-terrible blogger. I have been busy on a math project involving the game Sudoku, and I recently published my first blog post about my research. I am getting close to publishing a second post soon.
    Congratulations on getting to create a piece of art for a friend's book, and for writing a book yourself. I am not sure if I have a long book inside my mind, I think I prefer to write short stories and very short story that have to be funny.

    1. Barbara and I do a Sudoku puzzle every day, I am left handed and she is right handed so as we have breakfast or our evening meal a sudoku book can sit between us and we do one together. Over the last few years we have done a lot of them. These days we also do a word search afterwards as we are slowish eaters and word search books are easily available in the local shops.

      I suspect you have a long book inside yourself Mr ESB. I was not entirely sure but I have found that as I write so the tale develops and creates its own world allowing it to keep developing. I just need to work on a really interesting and logical end that will make folk think as they read the last few pages . . . . . . .Well I was not expecting that.
