A milestone reached

Sex&Drugs&Profiteroles was my 2005 - 2006 creative project, intended for hybrid self-publishing (video clip teaser for each audio book chapter) on this website.This inevitably did not work out as planned.

But almost two years ago to the very day I found myself sitting down and starting on the sequel. What I was doing was in fact nothing more than choosing to spend my weekends with the characters who had fascinated and intrigued me during the time spent on the first manuscript.

Anyway, yesterday I typed those fateful words, The End, on page 1,089 although an Epilogue is still called for. And, given that Volume 2 amounts to no less than 390 thousand words, the editing process could be long enough.

Sheesh, Mac: BIG numbers!

Coincidentally, I've just started writing the screenplay of my Magnificent Octopus: 25% of the way through the text of the novel, about 50 pages of script. Wah, gonna have to do some serious baby-killing.

If I turned "S&D&P vols. 1 and 2", into a script the result would be sufficient for a telenovela! One which, of course, could never reach the screen since one of the main locations is a naturist resort in southern France!

What I have done is to take a screenplay I wrote in 1999 and turned it into a novel. This is the manuscript I intend to post on Authonomy when some final tweaking has been completed.

Authonomites are waiting with baited breath, Mac!
