At least I’ve now ended up with 3,053 words on this new piece, effectively setting the scene, although I hate actually doing that, or reading books that start off that way. As an editor I tend to want to delete those scenes, but I needed to nail it down. I’ve not written a courtroom drama before so this is a radical departure. Now I need to bone up on a lot of different laws and issues, some of them going back to the 1940’s, so I might not get a lot done on this piece for a while, but I think the story has got legs.
That’s all for today – I’m going to go and pretend it’s man flu, and lie down. Talk to you all tomorrow.
