Setbacks

Mes Amis

Nobody said writing would be easy. Just got word back on the latest draft and, fuck if I haven't overloaded it again with too much extraneous nonsense (I fly between one extreme and the other). We might be in for a Sam's personal life reboot or perhaps even taking Sam out of this one (part of me fancies doing a Nameless 'tec style story) altogether. The problem is that in asking me to include stuff from the original Sam novel (entitled Twisted Sister and a shitey serial killer bollocks it was, too) has thrown me completely. I think lovely new editor Emma might be right that we need to reboot this and treat it like a new beginning.

Ah, crap!

Some days I hate writing. But already I have a battle plan, mes amis.

I'll show them.

I'll show everyone!

Au revoir

And then after you've shown them, zip up and get writing!

I think James Patterson thinks that writing is easy.

Yep.
