Comic Cuts - 15 May 2015
Anyway, I had four dozen copies ordered before publication which is gratifying as I fully expected the book to struggle to even two dozen. Thank you all for showing some faith in this very self-indulgent project. If you haven't picked up a copy, the book is available now.
As opposed to re-writing, which is what Hotel Business is all about. Just this morning I've taken a couple of PR pieces and turned them into short features, one about refurbishing a self-contained apartment with a small kitchen and a second about refitting a hotel with new carpets.
And I always thought the life of a writer would be glamorous!
The main problems so far have been technical: I lost a morning to my internet connection about ten days ago: the connection wouldn't stay active for more than a couple of minutes, which meant every couple of minutes I was disconnected from the mail server used by the magazine. It seems to have been a weather-related problem at Talk Talk. And this Wednesday just gone, I woke up to find that the mail server was returning error messages and I was unable to connect. It was fixed briefly and fell over again in the afternoon. Thankfully I had a few bits that needed writing up, so I was able to keep going.
this May 2010 post. Did I find out more this time around? You'll have to wait until the weekend to find out!
(An attempt to generate a little tension. But seriously... do you think I'd put together another post if I hadn't found out anything?)
