Okay- I’ll admit it. I’ve ended up having a weekend.
Finally ground to a halt on Day Five after fourteen pages- the total for the week is currently just over 40,000 words. Which ain’t bad. I’ve had a stack of DVDs to watch today (including Blaxploitation classic Sweet Sweetback’s Badaaassss Song), so I’m trying to get them out of the way fast, so tomorrow I can write the reviews and then spend time on doing a decent plot breakdown for the book. Which is something I really have to do, as it’s actually going quite well, and I need to know where I’m going. The kind of stuff my brain comes up with when I’m writing intensively is kind of shocking, weird, entertaining and I know there’s nothing like it being done at the moment. I actually want to write this book, I want to follow this through to wherever it takes me, which is rather a refreshing feeling.
Finished Anansi Boys, which was really, really good fun- a bonkers mix of myth and screwball comedy. Also watched The Cave, which was quite spectacularly uninteresting, for a variety of not particularly stimulating reasons.
Need to get myself back in the groove for Monday morning. I think this could become a regular thing…
