  • 19:39 Train slowed, shuddered, groaned and died. Haven't moved for 20 mins. Driver reports "circuit failure". Man with lamp has walked past. :( #
  • 19:56 Train now moving, perhaps thanks to the man with the lamp. Or perhaps not. Life rarely gives answers, especially where trains are involved. #

  • 07:05 RT @Bobbie42: @wilw Have you ever read @jonnynexus book "Game Night"? bit.ly/3H9tFD // You know, if we all RT this... [evil grin] #
  • 07:13 Status: knackered. Can't face new novel. Worked from 9am to 10pm yesterday on serialisation & launch. Still loads more people to contact. #
  • 07:16 Considering a more focussed & targetted strategy of simply stalking @wilw and his 2.9 milliwheaton's of followers. #
  • 07:20 RT @BlueBirdTail: Advertiser: always one rhyming couplet away from a fat pay cheque || Poet: always one advert away from a debt consultant #
  • 07:23 RT @benjohncock: Oh dear..... RT @caroleagent: 'I have written a fictional novel' no no no no. Sigh ... #
  • 07:32 Does it show that I'm sitting here on Twitter rather than writing? #
  • 07:52 Have stopped twittering. Reading @jessruston's Luxury instead. Will resume writing tomorrow. #
  • 08:54 Thanks to @Entorien and @puthekettleon for the RTs! #
  • 14:05 "A Pratchet-esque debut novel of gods, roleplaying, and game-night kerfuffles. A fun, fresh, irreverent read." bit.ly/3H9tFD Pls RT #

  • 17:39 And the ball drops into the black - my train wasn't cancelled! Touch wood, so far, the emergency timetable seems to be working. #
  • 17:42 So, stalking @wilw. I used to joke about stalking @jameswallis, now he's my publisher. Then again, Clapham's a bit more local. #
  • 18:41 RT @DomDouzeDom: Loved this book - I've let my friends read some and they have said they are going to buy a copy. Keep up the good work! #

  • 14:33 This morning I ran 10k. This afternoon, flights of stairs are posing a challenge. I might just have crippled myself. #
  • 14:35 There's nothing like running 10k to show what an awesome achievement running a 42k marathan is. #

  • 07:57 Bugger! Just checked blog comments and some bastard spammer has broken through the CAPTCHA and deposited 16 turds. Nice. #
