Working Away

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.
