My crumby new life

HAS ANYONE worked out how to adjust the word count on Scrivener to tally up the cups of tea and the biscuits you eat each day?

This has become a real issue in my writing life.

I ought to be getting more done because I’ve cut my commute in half.

I used to have to walk all the way down the hall to the study but I handed that room to my wife who is working from home.

The next available work space is the dining room table.

I’d be happy to take my laptop to a cafe but juggling a takeaway coffee with a keyboard without an actual seat is beyond my skill set. So the dining room table it is.

On the plus side, the dining room is nearer the bedroom.

On the minus side, it’s also nearer the kitchen.

Consequently, my tea and biscuit consumption has gone through the roof. Does that count as productivity?

I ACTUALLY shelved my work-in-progress so I had time to write a series of serials I am dropping into the online stores as eBooks as I finish them.

I’ve put the three oldest characters from one of my series — aged 82, 83 and 85 — into self-isolation for three months in a house in Tasmania. They don’t all like each other, but tough. It is for their own well-being.

I made do with a DIY cover at first, but you’ll be glad to know Maria has weighed in with the real deal, displayed here.

I should be able to upload the third instalment tomorrow (Friday, May 1) or early next week.

ONE OF MY books is in a free giveaway at BookFunnel.

You might have already got Lie of the Tiger, the first book of my Windy Mountain series. If so, take a look at some of the other novels on offer by clicking here.
