Arkem: I’m having a “I’d rather be napping” day. Me: Aw. That was my yesterday. Although to be fair, I’ve only just woken up today and I’m not sure yet that I don’t regret it. The problem with being ridiculously sleep deprived is not that I can’t write. I write just fine when I’m out […]
I’m not leaving town for like three weeks, I don’t understand why my brain is trying to switch time zones in advance. It is driving me crazy. Er. Crazier.

I am this* close to finishing the first draft of Wizards. Which means I am writing at speed and to the exclusion of most other things, like sleeping, eating and interacting with other human beings.
