Holy fat bum cheeks, I forgot the deadline is the time it has to arrive by. Gonna have to revise the time I have left.

You can do it! You can do it!

You have the whole weekend - lock the door of the study and ignore all other humans.

Good luck Dom!

Dom Carver said...

Back from work at 1.45am. Got my head down and did 3/4 of an hour writing, another three pages down.

Bed now, very tired.

Oh, and we have guests at the weekend so I'll have to finish it tomorrow night if I can.

I will do it :-)

Dom Carver said...

Right, 1.18 am, a glass of red wine and 9 pages to go.

Let's ROCK!!!

laurence timms said...

9 pages? Nothing. You laugh in the face of 9 pages. It's as good as in the bag.

Dom Carver said...

2.00am now, sweating like a piggy wiggy in my small stuffy room. I'm on my second glass of red wine and I'm on page 24, that means 6 to go.

Write damn you, write.

laurence timms said...

If it's any consolation I'm here writing at 2:00am too. But without wine. It'd make me fall asleep.

More coffee!

Dom Carver said...

Coffee...? Christ alive, you'll never sleep again!!!!!!

laurence timms said...

I'm kind of through the sleepy phase and into a wakey phase again now. Developing characters for my 'possibly for Red Planet' script.

I hate making names up.

Dom Carver said...

And why the blinking eck are you up drinking coffee and reading my blog in the wee small hours???? You're just hungry for those stimulants, aren't you!!!!!!!

Dom Carver said...

Ooh, buy a baby names book and a surnames meaning book, I use both to find the perfect names for my characters, either that or I steal names off people I know.

Dom Carver said...

2.36am, third glass of wine, computer screen out of focus, sausage fingers hitting random keys and I'm on page 27....yes page 27, that means less than 3 pages to go.....HUZZAH!!!!!

Dom Carver said...

Right, 2.52 am, 4th glass of wine, brain fried, gonna call it a night.

At bottom of page 27, so only 2 to go.

Nice!!!!!

laurence timms said...

Crikey blimey, I called it a night at 2:12am.

Got names I'm happy with: Rhiannon Judd and Yasmin Abboud.

Make sure you re-read that stuff you wrote after 2:30am. I know from bitter experience that I make some awful cack-handed mistakes at that time of the morning. Syntax and grammar just flies out of the window.

Best of luck with the final few pages.

Dom Carver said...

Done and dusted. Now to print off and post. Fantastico!!!!

laurence timms said...

Freeow! Don't forget to put that entry form they emailed back to you on the front of the script.

I can feel the pain, the joy, the urgency!
