But the truth is, there have been lots of other writing-related things to do.
For many writers who epublish, the focus of this week has been opting into kindle's 70% royalty scheme which came into effect yesterday. Like many things requiring computer updates, it hasn't gone entirely smoothly. However, it brings the possibility of earning a living as an indie writer that bit closer.
The other thing I've spent a lot of time on this week is reworking and editing my novel Going Underground. This is an unusual story in that much of it is set down caves - one cave in particular, most of the time. This book will doubtless have some future blog posts all of its own, but there is one spooky thing about writing it that I'll mention now. The curious thing is that the fictitious Quarry Cave, where most of the action is set, has become more real in my mind, in all its detail, than many of the caves I've explored for real.
