NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Mrs Darcy, Episode Eleven

Good Lord, are we up to Episode Eleven already? Not a lot to say about this one, apart from the fact that I am quite proud of the punchline, which emerged completely out of the blue when I was frantically trying to work out a way to end the episode. It’s nice when that happens.

  1. Yup – great punch-line – happened along like it was always meant to be.
    While I catch up I find myself wondering about how this is going to go, not storywise (looking forward to many surprises) but as a publication. Somehow find it hard to imagine it as anything other than a blog. It’s ideally pitched for the medium.
    Meanwhile an editor’s nitpick in Ep10 – ‘in her late forties’ just strikles me as out of place, or are we sending something up – again?

    Thanks! I find myself wondering that too :) I think an awful lot depends on how much of an audience I can pull in as it goes on. If I could get some reasonable numbers (and don’t ask me how many that is – I have no idea), it could provide leverage towards a “proper” publication. But for that to happen, I need to pull a few more marketing stunts. And I also need to make it easier for newcomers to catch up, so I need to improve the navigation. But it’s an interesting exercise. My main worry before embarking on this was that I would make a complete fool of myself, but enough people whose opinions I respect seem to be liking it, so I’m less bothered about that now.

    And I take your point about “late forties”. It’s authorial intrusion. That’s the problem with self-publishing – self-editing is always second best!
