It’s been a bit of a slow week. I haven’t made much progress on The Green and the Gathering Tide or on any of my projects for the simple reason that I’ve been writing Lord of the Rings fanfiction. Hopefully it’s at least good fanfiction.
However, a little progress is still progress. I’ve also been rejected by the last few magazines I submitted short stories to, so I’ll most likely be submitting next week.
In other news, I’m now almost at the end of The Two Towers in my re-read and I’m at a part which has full-time hobbits so I’m happy again. Theoretically I’m also reading The Blind Assassin but I haven’t picked it up all week.
And I’m twelve episodes into the thirteen-part radio series. I plan to finish it at work tomorrow afternoon and I’m looking forward to it – I assume the final episode has the Scouring of the Shire, which I haven’t seen/heard dramatised before.
I also listened to Turn of the Screw from Big Finish, a short that I’ve been very much looking forward to – though I confess, not quite as much as I’m looking forward to this month’s Erasure which I’ll be listening to next weekend!
I’m also in the process of applying for some very exciting job vacancies, so I shall optimistically say ‘watch this space’.
