No, this is about the fact that I’m starting to get a bit… well, bored of The Delta Children. I’m 38k words into the bloody thing, and I’m struggling a bit.

It’s the bit all writers get a bit bored of, I suppose. It’s like sitting in the cinema, watching the film roll, when you were the one who filmed it.

I’m actually tempted to put back the second season of High Moon Rising/Order of Britain in order to write it. But we shall see.
