Nothing beats delivering a manuscript … except maybe delivering a manuscript a week ahead of schedule.
I’m not quite sure how that’s happened with the final novel in my ghostwritten Crown of Three fantasy trilogy, but who am I to question the inscrutable workings of the universe? All I know is that the last of the plot threads have been tied up, the destinies of the characters have been resolved, and my work on that particular project is now officially done. Tonight’s celebrations may involve the imbibing of wine.
Coincidentally, this week saw me deliver another manuscript, this time for my Cinefex article on the upcoming film X-Men: Apocalypse. My work there isn’t quite done yet. I still need to chaperone the story through a final review process, after which I’ll be writing captions for both the print and digital editions of the magazine. Oh, and starting work on the next article, of course …
With several Cinefex stories now under my belt, I’ve just posted this little blog article, reflecting on my first few months working as senior staff writer for the magazine. I’m delighted to say that my article on the newest James Bond movie, Spectre, is already out in the wild, in Cinefex 145. Next month, you’ll be able to read my articles on Deadpool, Gods of Egypt, and Hail, Caesar!, in our April edition, Cinefex 146. By the way, if you haven’t seen Deadpool yet, you really should. It’s an absolute hoot.
