What I’m working on…

I don’t normally like to talk about things that I’m currently working on, for a number of reasons; firstly, just in case it doesn’t work out and I ‘shelve’ the project for a future attempt. Or possibly I might finish the piece but I can’t find anyone who’s interested in publishing it. I suppose I’ve come to the conclusion that until it’s published, it doesn’t exist (other than in my mind). BUT (you knew there was a but, didn’t you?) I just wanted to mention something that I’m working on at the minute.

My friend and fellow writer, Mark West, and I are working on a novella each, both involving the theme of ‘lost films’. Mark’s a fine writer, and I’m honoured he’s trusting me to be involved in this project. In fact, that was the part that attracted me when I heard about it; it’s only a mild collaboration, but the fact that we’re writing these two independent stories, with several crossover points, means I feel far more enthusiastic about finishing them. Even if they never see the light of day, I get the feeling that we’re both having a blast writing them…

More information as it arrives.

  1. Seems a bit harsh to consider something non-existent because it has not been published.

    I know exactly what you mean, I’ve always assumed that most things I work on would fall by the wayside as I went 😉

    I’m looking forward to this, though, I think it’ll be fun. And it was great to finally meet up, face-to-face, at the weekend!

    I know, Andrew. I’m harsh when it comes to my own stuff. It’s the old nagging self-doubt; if it’s not been published it’s either not finished or it needs improving. Thanks for looking, btw.

    Mark, it was great to meet you, too. I’m enthused by your niceness!

    Ah, thanks! You too!

    A nice concept, two great writers. Hope it turns out well fellas! I look forward to reading it.

    I hope the book is making progress. Any news?

      Mark’s section is coming along nicely, Mario. Mine is a little more stubborn. Hope to have something to report in the new year. Thanks for looking, Mario.

      Sorry to butt in! My story is now finished in 1st draft and Steve can see the light at the end of the tunnel with his – we’ve got good feelings about this, hopefully it all works out well!
