Orphaned Worlds – 1st Public Appearance
Yes, insane as it may appear, your humble scribe churns out the first draft … in long hand! And yes, the typing is a killer.
Okay, there is actually a reason for this. Back, waaay back in about 1998 I had, after many years of handtooled manuscripting, made the crossing to using the keyboard for my initial drafts. Unfortunately, I then got a job in a call centre, full time too, which meant that when I got home the last thing I wanted to do was use a keyboard after battering away at one for the entire day at work. Thus I reverted to the inscribing of ye scrolls by kandlelyte.
But, like Gordon Brown’s government and Big Brother, this just can’t go on. So for book 3 I shall strive to make that leap again and, who knows, it might increase the old production rate. Get back to you on that one.
