Friday again, huh!

I’m nose deep in editing my latest novel at the moment, which lives under the title Shieldwall, but almost definitely wont be published under that name. It went to market a 200,000 word door-stopper, and like rose bushes and apple trees, needs a little bit of pruning to really bloom.

I’ve been though all kinds of music for this novel. I started off with a mix of medieval songs and Gregorian chants, as well as some Anglo Saxon music that was sung at the Coronation of Edward the Confessor. Eddie Vedder’s soundtrack to INto the Wild, Steeleye Span, of all things, as well as Ganbold.

What's blasting away at the moment is the finest track for editing for action, thrill and momentum: Mozart's Requiem!
