If I had a publisher then they’d probably be yelling at me down the phone right now. They would tell me to put down the car wash sponge as the car was only a little bit dirty and it’s about to rain anyway. They would tell me to stop filing my nails down. They would tell me that the list of video games I have made that I think need completed by the end of 2017 isn’t really the most important thing in my life right now.
There would then follow a long talk about how it’s coming along gradually and that the chapter I was having so much trouble with has now been finished. The completion has brought with it a complete red herring as far as the police officer’s investigation is concerned and a brand new character who will only remain in the story for another chapter at the most.
We’d then move onto how the final phase of the book currently tilts between and ending which will be fun to write but doesn’t make much sense and another which is the polar opposite.
Then we’d laugh and laugh.
Promising to do this all again next week before hanging up.
I’m quite glad at this stage that I don’t have a publisher.
