Well, last week I finally wrote the last line of DARKE! It’s gone well, I think, but now I have to go back and rewrite some bits and check it all fits together logically (otherwise I know at least one of you will notice!). If I have time, which I think I do, I will read it out aloud to myself too. It’s really interesting how things can look fine on the page and sound very clunky when you read them out aloud. So, like Sep, I am nearly out of the Darke, but not quite…
Movie news: Warner Brothers extended their option on Septimus a couple of weeks ago. They need more time to put together all the things they need to in order to get the go-ahead. So it’s still on track, but not at the definite stage yet. But I do think it is looking really promising.
Happy summer (or winter down south),
