Who’s that, hiding under all those blankets…?
That’ll be me…
Yes, I’m back from my holidays. Two weeks of unbroken sunshine, twenty-eight degree heat (Celsius, of course), and a nice constant breeze. Perfect for someone like me, who only has two skin colours: red and white.
I went back to the Canary Islands this year – a crazy collection of Atlantic-bound rocks, located just off the western shores of Africa, and dominated by volcanic landscapes and often whacky architecture. We selected it as good weather is almost always guaranteed, all year round, and importantly because for Europeans it’s an affordable destination. As holidays go, it wasn’t the cultural delight of last year, but nonetheless it was good to chill-ax for a while.
It was a bit of an odd couple of weeks from a creative perspective. Compared to last year, not much drafting got done – I guess because I’m still working on the characters and storyboard for book three – but I did (unexpectedly) end up writing a possible first few pages for Thunder’s sequel (where did they come from!), come up with some nice plot-line components for the next novel, and even added some flesh to my outlines for a possible Firebird sequel. So, overall, I’m quite pleased with what I achieved.
So what’s next? Well, it’s time to see if I can get Firebird onto the Apple iBookstore and, after that, I will revisit Thunder and start preparing for publication. Lots to do! I just need to top up my hot-water bottle, and then I’ll get started…
