I've made an initial enquiry to a publisher, as I said I would. See, I do occasionally remember to do things. I forget other things though. I was just nicely finishing off chapter 1 of the new piece when my brother reminded me that I was due to play cricket tonight, forcing a hurried collection of kit from assorted corners.
I'm glad he reminded me, because I finally got to bowl. 3 wickets for 11 runs is a good return for three overs (non-cricket people will have to trust me on this), particularly since it's been so long since I've bowled that I was extremely rusty. In a way that relates to writing. It's important that you're writing not just on the days when you feel really great and inspired, but also on the bad days. A few hundred words here and there can really add up, and if you stick to the fundamentals of writing, it can still be good stuff. In sport they call it 'winning ugly' or, in my case 'lobbing the ball vaguely into the air and waiting for people to miss.'
