Just a quick update…  I’m actively working on Devil in the Detail, which will probably be a novella length thing.  I’m using it as an exercise in getting a really tight plot; I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on style recently in the two other projects I’ve got going – a literary/Irvine Welsh thing, and a sci-fi thing – so this is a chance to step back.  It’s very easy to DO, i.e. write, but it’s easier to change a 600 word txt file than a 90,000 word novel, so get your PLAN sorted first.  It can be slightly fluid, after all, that’s the fun in writing, but your story needs to be nailed on, at least for twisty-turny crime fiction anyway.
I update my twitter account a lot, so look at that for updates.
