I hate summer

I'm hot, sweaty and suffering from Hayfever, I hate it. Unless I'm at a beach then that's different.

Still going to comic cons tomorrow (London) should be interesting! Hope to see some stars.

Update

Okay I want to give you guys an update, I am working on the story, but have become stuck. I’m waiting on a nurse who is going to help me out, massively with the first part of the story. The ten chapters that we have at the moment, will hopefully be extended to 30 chapters. It’s a book in of itself. The nurse works in a long term care facility in the states, so I should be able to gain tons of information of her. Proxy is unable to help me due to real life issues, and Dale my editor is also suffering with family obligations. Yes, unfortunately the reviewer was right, for the moment the story is on hold. Aine, my lovely new assistant will be helping me out from the 17th of this month, so things should be moving from then on out.

Thank you for sticking with me, I promise you won’t regret it!

More help continued

Please don't email me that you are something and then when I email you back, don't reply, it's incredibly annoying. It gets me all excited and then I get let down. I am working with editors on chapter 11 to 20, 21 to 30 will be the first school term.

Something I found

you write so beautifully,
the inside of your mind
must be a terrifying place

More help

Okay so the Army Boot Camp was a bust, I'd like to try another angle. I'm writing several stories that involve the American Schooling system, the most important of these is Mulligan.

This has not been forgotten and yes, yes, it's being rewritten. I'm up to chapter 10 (again) and am planning out 11 to 20 with my editor Dale.

Chapters 20 to 30 will be the start of James’ schooling, how he will proceed and how it will set the stage for future chapters. The first part will finish on chapter 30 and it’s my intention to leave each book with a cliff hanger I would also like to do a time jump between book 1 and 2 so that we can skip some of the more tedious detail. I’ve not decided on how big a jump yet. At the very least I would like to finish book one, as this has been winding me up for about 2 years now.

So here’s what I need help with. How to plan out a school year, including what classes he would be taking, remember I know shit all about the American schooling system, and even with research, yes I have done some, it’s difficult to know where to start. This would include all of the major events, lessons and things that I can add to make him seem like a genius. It was my intention, by the end of book one to show off exactly how smart he is, which to say, is very smart.
