The fast pace comes from my ADHD. I find myself always ready for the next thing. Hopefully it will appeal to similarly afflicted readers.

A few minutes ago I finished a fourteen-page short story that went through nine (!) drafts before I got it just right. It's one of the best things I have ever written.

Nothing. I've done nothing on my WIP for over 2 weeks now. Though today I did come up with a cracking joke for it that involves doing a drawing of a dinosaur with udders in the style of a 1930s pulp magazine illustration.

I'm feeling very excited: I received my personal and promotional copies, book marks, leaflets, etc of my second book in a big parcel yesterday. I love it! I haven't had the time (or inclination) to work on anything else since - I'm just wallowing in the glory! Now, if only I can sell a few...
I'd love to do a giveaway on this site but haven't worked out how yet.

Just got the cover for my next release "Defiant Dancer". The web page goes up tonight as we roll into the pre-release promo stuff.
WIP for "Battle Dancer" is around 140 pages into its first draft. Just nuked my MC...literally. Air burst, so her bunch got relatively lucky. All done using autonomous drones that made it through their defenses - future war is hell..of a lot of fun.

Three hours I've been labouring over the first draft of a scene (which is totally unconnected to anything else in the book) and at the end of it I've got less than 600 words to show for it. Including this touching post coital moment between a private eye and the magnificently well endowed woman who walked into his office in the previous paragraph...
The sun was setting over the Pacific, flooding the bedroom of my Malibu beach place with its golden reddish light. She lay face down on the rumpled black satin bedsheets, semi-conscious, naked and sated with pleasure from our lovemaking. I strolled in from the kitchen, a tray with two empty glasses and a smorgasbord of hors d'œuvres I had rustled up in one hand, and a jug of Margheritas in the other*. I too was naked except for my wartime souvenir silk Kimono and the sharkskin handled Colt 45 service revolver in my alligator leather shoulder holster. I put down the food and drinks on the bedside table, sat on the bed beside her and gave a friendly slap to her magnificent rump. It responded in a wave of delightful ripples. She rolled over. She parted the curtain of her magnificent red hair that was swept, tousled across her face by our passion,.
She smiled a orgasm battered smile, "Wow, Trip," she said, huskily.
I poured her a Margherita. She sipped it and rubbed at the Colt 45 shaped bruise on her right breast.
"Don't you ever take that thing off?"
"Only when I have to, baby."
She searched around as if looking for something. "Where are my clothes?" She said eventually..
"Out on the beach, don't you remember?"
She seemed shocked. "We did it on the beach!?"
"Five times. Then the neighbours called the cops and we came in here."
"You're some man, Trip," she said, and finished the drink.
"Okay, babe," I smiled. "We've had our fun, now let's get down to business. Why don't you start by telling me your name?"
*This is almost certainly a printer's error and should read 'Margaritas'. Unless Trip Hazard was in the habit of serving his lady friends puréed pizzas to drink.
