The guy who plays Thoros on Game of Thrones is Paul Kaye. He was also Dennis Pennis, a fearless imp with a fake American Accent who ambushed unsuspecting celebrities with dumb, insulting questions and bad puns. It’s brilliant and hilarious and predates any Sacha Baron Cohen character by a few years.
Finished notebook 1 of my next novel. I’m allowing myself a celebration of that milestone by writing about my writing, which I find is mostly a waste of time better spent writing.
As with everything we write, none of this progress is worth a damn thing until it’s finished. Even when this book is done, I might still be the only person who cares.
Writing is its own end. It enriches my life and makes it livable. I want to publish it because I like attention and I think people will like what I’ve written, but that’s not why I write. The promise of somebody one day enjoying this stuff drives me forward, but everything I make is for my pleasure before anything else.
This picture marks the completion of the first 1/4 of my second novel. I like where it’s going and I like how it moves. So far so good.
