For the first time in quite a while I feel like I’m doing well with my writing. With over 1000 words a day I’m getting through the book quickly. I know the rest of the plot and the start of the next one. I don’t know when I will finish this one, but It’s not that far away.

I’m reading Through the Looking Glass for the Victorian Wonders module at uni. I’ve read adaptations and seen various films but never read the original book. It’s weirder than I could have ever guessed but I’m enjoying it. I like weird things. There is a sense of logic to everything. I will read Alice in Wonderland afterwards, probably over Christmas. 

Jake Bugg’s new album came out on Monday. I’ve listened to it a couple of times. First impression is quite good. Not sure if it’s better than his first album, but I really like it. Billie Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones put their album, Foreverly on Amazon to stream for free. It’s a rerecording of Songs Our Daddy Taught Us by The Everly Brothers. It’s surprisingly good. I’ve only listened to it once, and will again soon. It’s a nice little album. 

I’ve reread and caught up with Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers comic run in time for the end of Infinity next week. It’s so much better on the second reading when I know whats coming and can see it being set up. I find that most of Hickman’s writing is better on the second reading. 

I’m really looking forward to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Everything has been leading to this. The mini episode they put on youtube last week was great. It’s good to see Paul McGann back. I hope he gets to do more episodes in some way. Either online or appear in full episodes. I think the episode at the weekend will be even better. The trailer looks great and at any rate it will be good to see David Tennant back. 

I’m off to try and write about entering a city/town for fiction. I’m not expecting it to go that well, but oh well. 

Thanks for reading,
