Does anyone else find eight straight hours of #manuscript revision physically as well as mentally exhausting?
And right now my brain hurts - a lot - from stitching some short pieces together, possibly out of final sequence, to get 50 straight pages.
Just sent the submission. My problem is I don't write #fiction in 50 page chunks. I write lots of 5-10 sequences and stitch together.
I am editing and laying out my sub for the open call today. I am surprisingly nervous.
Woke up at 4a.m. I couldn't get to sleep, so the first five chapters of new story are now done. #amwriting, even if I'd rather not.
What would you do with 8 hours of writing time? (please feel free to continue in the comments)

I'm not tweeting much because I am trying to get something ready for Jonathon Cape on Sunday. I'll let you know how it goes.
So a #scammer using a false name emails an #author using a penname about buying shares in a company name that does not exist.. #irony

Steam engine DVD to watch for #research, and then a real steam train later on today. Sometimes i love #writing.

Please stop asking why I let my #cat do things. He's a cat, there's no 'let' involved
I took this from several angles, but I'm still not sure what livery the #aircraft is in. Anyone know?

I am trying to #write, but the #cat determined to share (read take over) my chair and keyboard is not helping.
I was grateful a little too soon. To quote a colleague "It's been a hell of a week, and it's only Monday!"
After a very busy and exhausting weekend, I find myself strangely grateful it is Monday morning.
Not sure whether to relase the new one or send it to Jonathon Cape's open call. I suspect I don't write their type of #book.
Picked up some images of a different steam train, but no time for talk for research.
Picked up a #Hornby starter set, purely for work purposes. Work is currently not being done, but the train set is in use & scaring #cats.
Disappointed: It not only wasn't Clan Line, which is OK, but it wasn't even a steam train, which is not.
