How long is it since I told you I had finished writing my book? I can't remember. Weeks ago wasn't it? Guess what I have just been doing? What? Certainly not! I'm far too old for those sort of shenanigans. Besides the opportunity never presents itself these days. Now then where was I before you knocked me off course. Oh yes. The book.
I was wrong to say it was finished the first time I said it. I was wrong to say it was finished the second time too. But I really did think, the third time I said it that it was finished. I even sent the manuscript to Stuart to have a look at.
What has happened now is, because we changed our minds about the publisher, I have had the chance to add another chapter. It isn't just an afterthought either. I think it is an important part of the book. So anyway the book is getting longer all the time. It is now at almost 54.000 words. A decent size book I think.
There is still just a little bit more I feel the need to write, maybe another thousand words and then it will definitely be finished. Apart from illustrations that it, but they are coming along.
So please forgive me for keep saying it is finished. I can't seem to help adding to it. But I'll tell you what, and I realise I shouldn't perhaps say this, because it might sound a bit big headed, but I have just read through the whole thing again, and it is a bloody good read. I am proud of it. Feeling positive. Yeah! I don't usually feel so positive. It must be something I ate. I haven't partaken of any alcohol today. I just feel good.
How I shall feel about it tomorrow I really don't know. But tonight. Yeah!
That's enough of that. Have a look at this photo. This is the only comfy chair I have, and I can't even sit in it. Sometimes I think I am being manipulated by these two upstarts. My newspaper is under them too. I was hoping to do the crossword. Nice to see them being such good friends though.
