Hey hey! Its Friday and that must mean another chapter in the novel is complete and YES, it does!

I am well into part two of the book, which means that it won’t be too long before I am half-way through the first draft of this monster. I am very pleased with myself.

I have also ranged a head a bit to plan out the next 3 chapters in more detail so that the writing when I get there in the next couple of weeks is smoother and easier to tackle. Well, in theory!

This afternoon I head off to Richmond in the Northern Cape where I am attending the Boekbedonnered Literary Festival. I am really looking forward to this.

I am giving a workshop on creativity at 10am on Saturday morning. At 5pm they are screening our film, Punk In Africa and I will be hosting a Q&A session afterwards… nice!

So, I thought this was as good a time as any to share the history of my novel as reflected in my blog posts here… As you will see from each date, it has taken a lot longer than I thought to get to this stage! But enjoy a stroll down memory lane with me and these older posts about the progress I have been making. They start below with the oldest post first, click on the date to read the post…
