I'm working on a new draft of 'The Missing'. This is the one where I'll hopefully finish for now. It feels more complete than it has ever done before, with a proper ending and far better justification for the main character actions. Once this rewrite is complete (which should take about a month) I'll print it the whole lot off and give it to Lady H for its first outing in the big bad world. Only then will I start on a treatment to send out to the publishers and agents and start thinking about the next project (of which there are many).
We're off to Italy on Saturday, a few days in the house in Barga and then three nights in a great boutique hotel in Florence. I'm looking forward to the break as its the last one I might get for some time as Lady H and I have bought for each other half a flat. We plan to tape the pieces together and have a whole apartment that's all ours for the beginning of April. Not a bad Valentines day present by any ones estimation however as I'm on my own (Lady H is in London on business) I'll have to celebrate with a curry and a beer.
