That's because I've been writing.
Mainly, I've been writing a TV pilot script and its novelised adaptation at the same time. This is an unusual endeavour, I'll grant you, but I'm enjoying it a great deal. This, despite the mad self-imposed deadline on the novel, which means I need to write an average of 3000 words per day in order to complete draft zero by the end of May, so that I can go on holiday feeling like I deserve it.
The interesting thing about working on a script and its novelisation at the same time, is that the two processes inform each other. I wrote draft zero of the script first, which has acted as a kind of outline or template for the novel. In turn, the novel forces me to get right inside characters' heads, which will give me helpful insights for the next draft of the script.
Of course, it hasn't all been hard work. Last night, I was approached by a Facebook 'businessman' with a remarkable proposal concerning 5.5 million Euros. You don't get remarkable business prosposals via Facebook very often, so I decided to give him the special treatment, when I should have been writing 1000 words of novel.
Good day to you.
