Wow! I can't believe we're so close to Christmas. It really has snuck up on me. We had a chaotic start to the week finishing off Hotel Business magazine which, despite having already been delayed by a fortnight, went right to the wire. We had a 24-page supplement with this issue which I finished writing at 4 o'clock on Tuesday. We signed off the proofs at 5:45pm and the files were sent to the printers shortly after.
Wednesday was a bit of a write-off as I pottered about trying to catch up with over 250 e-mails that had built up unanswered. It's now Thursday evening and I'm down to 121 at home and 103 at work... a net gain of about 26, although you have to add the 90 or so mails I get each day, so I've actually ploughed my way through around 200 e-mails in order to achieve that tiny increment of 26!
No wonder I'm knackered!
I should have a little announcement shortly – nothing major, just a new e-book that I started ages ago but had to put aside. I've finally hustled it into shape and I'm giving it a final read-through before it goes out.
I had hoped to post a little something on Carl Wilton last weekend but ran out of time. I'll post the piece this weekend; to keep you going, here are another handful of Carl's covers for Pan...
I'll take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope you have a great time over the next couple of weekends.
