SO… here’s how my Monday is going so far — this is the second draft of this post. WordPress lost my first draft when I went to switch to classic mode.
This week will be a busy and exciting one for me, darlings. Now that I’ve officially thrown my feather boa into the ring of Shu-ba-da-du-ma-ma-ma-ma-Na-No-Wri-Mo-Betta-Mo-Fo-Fo-Sho-Mo-Manna-Banana-Fanna-Fo-Wri-Mo, I have until the 30th to complete my novel — the first of a planned trilogy called The People of the Manatii (that’s pronounced the same as the noble sea cow, darlings) and the first book is subtitled Star-crossed. Unlike CHUK, I actually had a title planned for this in advance, whereas CHUK went for the longest time under such working titles as “Tales from Bayou Bonhomme, Borne on the Bayou (a little April Fool’s joke) and my personal favourite, 22 Short Films About Glenn Gould, which I thought was wonderful, until someone told me it was already a thing. Who knew?
I may be more absent than usual this week, as I work overtime to write likely around 20,000 words, putting me at just over 60,000 words or so — to put this in perspective, this is about a 200 page book — not a LARGE novel — CHUK is twice that size — but acceptable, and as it’s part of a trilogy, I’m not concerned with its size.
BUT, I promise to drop in once a day, and if I’m not amusing, I will at least try to provide you with some marvelous musical musings.
Also — I just yesterday got my first glimpse at a mock-up of cover art for Memoirs of a Dilettante Volume Two, and wow is it looking good! Now, perhaps you have some guesses at who the cover artist is, but don’t be too hasty with your assumptions — it could be anyone, really.
And now for something completely different.
