Working Away

writing
One more monkey down.

Today I delivered the first draft of "Blackwater" to Dan and David. (Finally) A bit overdue, as always. And probably too long and long expensive, as my scripts always are. (I got to write the Battle of the Blackwater. I tried to be good and restrain myself, but you know how things go. Oh, well. I knew the job was dangerous when I took it).

This is television... (no, it's not TV, it's HBO)... so there will undoubtedly be many further drafts and revisions. But the first draft is the hard one.

And it's a good thing it's done. On Sunday I leave for the first leg of my US book tour.

Re: I'm beginning to think...
I do sometimes take on more than I can easily chew, I must admit it. I am perpetually guilty of an excess of optimism about how much work I can actually get done in a certain period of time.

There were times in my life and career when I could reliably knock out a teleplay or short story in two weeks, a novella in a month, a novel in a year. Those times are gone, alas.
