Astronomy picture of the day
Lots to choose from this week, so I’ve picked two: this summer triangle over Catalonia and this castle and meteor by moonlight.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Went to see this on Friday and I enjoyed it much more than I expected. The CGI was very well done. I was expecting a fun romp but the film was much more than that. Having seen it, I really want to see a remake of the original.
Starting a new writing project
After nearly three years of working on Immortal/Sacrifice I’ve decided it is time to move on. I’ve learnt so much about writing a novel with this project but I’ve reached the point where I need to take that and start something new. I said I would do the next one differently and am going to start with planning it out and building up my world. I’m very excited about the new WIP, working title Wormfeeder.
It's hard to leave a project behind, especiaaly one you've invested so much time on. Maybe you can come back to it at a later date.
Yes, it's not closed off completely. It's boxed and filed and if I feel the urge I can go back to it whenever I like. Having said that, now I'm getting some distance from it, I'm beginning to see what I was frustrated about. Those things are quite fundamental and I don't think a rewrite will fix them. But I can carry that learning into a fresh, new project and create something I'm happier with.
