    Your worst habit?
    In writing terms? Writing sentences that have more commas than words. In non-writing terms? My nails do get whittled down when I'm thinking. I think the keratin intake is good for creativity.
    Your opinion on the books industry?
    Too much celebrity and hype, but good books still get through

    What else do you want Word Clouders to know? eg: do you have 9 cats / like paragliding / eat nothing but tinned fish / work in the bath / live in Kettering?
    I am an NHS drone with a wife and two cats. I am an attempted vegan, but don't hold that against me, I still can't help but savour the odd cheesy morsel. I like to boulder and to badminton but never at the same time, though this could be even better...

    Missed this the other day - made me laugh. I've got a keyboard cat too. well, he alternate between Keyboard cat and Lapcat. The former appears when I'm at the desk, the latter when I'm on the laptop. Only problem there is that as I'm not very tall, ...

      TheWeyMan This is the way I was heading - I don't want to stop writing the new WIP and lose the flow. I think the other one will have to wait, but I'm anxious to get that done too. If only I could work using independent brain hemispheres :(

      Squidge Giving yourself a break before teh third edit means you come into it with a fresh mind, ready to spot all the things you didn't before! I'm doing the same - started book 2 in the series, then put it on hold when I hit the flow of editing No 1 (for the eleventy-millionth time!)

      TheWeyMan That's what I'm not sure about, I don't want to stop writing book 2 and lose my train of thought, especially as book one is entirely unrelated.

      Squidge If book 1's finished, stick with writing book 2 now if that's where your energy and interest lie, and edit 1 later...

    With chapter nine well on the way, I am about a third of the way through 'Craft' and I am still to do my final edit on 'Kept in the Dark,' or 'KitD' as my Granddad and proof reader refers to it.   I have a plan of attack and a list of updates ...

      Lightning I think ?! is more common, but both are acceptable (some might say over-used) forms of the nonstandard punctuation mark interrobang (‽).

    TheWeyMan The story, all names, characters, and incidents portrayed in this production are fictitious. If you find that you are drawing similarities between yourself and any of the aforementioned characters, I can assure you, you will not be alone... But you are probably a bad person.

About

I have finished writing my first book, which is out for scrutiny as I type (a thriller called 'Kept in the Dark'). Hopefully, this will be ready to send out to agents soon... after I put it through some more rigorous editing.

As a novice, I'm not yet sure what my genre forte is, so I have started writing a new fantasy novel called 'Craft'. I don't necessarily want to find my niche, but I'll keep testing new waters while I have the patience.
