A writerly weekend…

P1250313I was late setting off for the north on Friday, so there was no time to stop and enjoy the autumnal colour that now blankets the land like some medieval tapestry, all ochres, rust and gold. By the time I arrived it seemed prudent to do little more than work on a few of the ongoing projects as Saturday evening, we already knew would be a late night….

MH 3d smThe weekend was almost entirely about writing, from one perspective or another. Saturday morning, before second (or possibly third) breakfast, we finished a very special project… then as we sent a further book to publish, I had notification that the new and revised edition of The Mystical Hexagram with G. Michael Vasey was almost ready to relaunch. We  started on the storyline for a book, raised a glass in recognition of the second anniversary of publication of The Living One and spent the evening in Langsett and, while we were there and quite by chance, we met fellow blogger and book reviewer, Andy Angel of Ebookwyrm.

The evening was writerly too. We spent it signing copies of Mister Fox: the Legend at thelo3d behest of the mysterious Charles James Fox himself… apart from when we took the cameras out into the night or dangled with them from first floor windows in search of images.

Doubtless, more will be said on their dance at the Hunter’s Moon…

One of the highlights of the weekend was overhearing a reader’s comments as he leafed through the newly acquired Legend… Not ‘just’ a compliment, but an exclamation of,  “Ah, that’s why…..” There are moments you know it is all worthwhile… and they have nothing to do with sales figures.

But the weekend was over way too fast. Even so, as we talked over coffee, even at the ungodly hour we had to be up to head respectively for the office and the long journey south, we somehow managed to sketch out the skeleton of yet another book…

I drove south… a four hour commute to my place of work… and rolled my sleeves up. Yet just for once, if anyone had asked me what we do, I, for one, would simply have answered, grinning from ear to ear… “I’m a writer.”

    That sounds like an excellent weekend! Very writerly, and certainly much more interesting than mine, the highlight of which was making a cheese sandwich.
