Brought to you by the word 'Nooooooooooooooo!'

The children's tv project (the one for which I was writing a script involving puppets, for anyone keeping track), has just gone on indefinite hold. This is a shame, as it was quite a big deal which would have left me secure for a good couple of months, and for which I turned down a couple of other writing gigs. I'll get paid for the work I've done so far (just storylining, so nothing major), and it may all come back, but I doubt it. When the momentum's gone on these things, it rarely returns.

Also, Agent Ginny is moving on (to an excellent job from which I fully expect freebies) , and very soon will just be known as Ginny, as she won't be agenting any more. I am very happy for her and will stop ringing her office and shouting 'BETRAYER' and slamming the phone down again very soon. Probably in the next couple of days or so.

On the plus side, I'm cracking on with the Cabinet book, so probably I should take this as an omen (or possibly a portent) and just focus on that. Also I found my watch. Weirdly, it was under my mattress. I blame spiders.

You have spiders living under your mattress?

Are they the same ones that we supposedly eat twelve of every night while we sleep unknowing of the arachnid threat to our slumber?

In that case, do they count as part of our daily red meat intake?

Full of 'Eeek' numbers.

I'm sorry to hear about the abandoned project. Maybe it's for the best - The Curious Cabinet might be wanting all your attention. It's v. good! x

p.s Spiders? Maybe it was Jeff?

I hope you are going to get another agent now that Ginny is going. You can't go back to just one.
You can never go back; never go back...
