IS PROCRASTINATON THE THIEF OF TIME?

LONDON AUGUST 5TH 2007

A thousand pardons to regular visitors for the lack of update and information. I can only report that my recent travels to bizarre islands such as Inertia, Insomnia and Black Dog are responsible for this delay.  Since completing The World According to Ned, I have been trying to decide between writing a selection of short stories, a non fiction book about Patmos, a novel about an English priest in Santa Monica and beginning the follow up to Taking Leave. Don’t spend too much time thinking about things and just get on with something is my tip for the top.

Recent highlights of the Thomas life include:

Going to see the film The Lives of Others – An exceptionally well crafted film and one which anyone with any taste should see without delay.

And at the opposite end of the scale and nearly as good, seeing the Simpsons movie.

I have also recently enjoyed reading: Nature Girl by Carl Hiassen, Young Adolf by Beryl BainbridgeThe Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (second attempt!) and Churchill’s Folly – Leros and the Aegean by Anthony Rogers

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO NED.

The book was finished in early June and at 130 pages is like a novella.

Ned is a Russian cat who leaves his luxurious surroundings to live in London. He is aided and abetted in this relocation by some gifts passed on to him by his talented grandparents. All of these gifts and his character are put to the test when Ned witnesses the murder of a human and a dog.

Sharp eyed readers will be remember a cat called Ned in Taking Leave. Well, this is not exactly the same black cat but he is certainly from the same extended family. The book is currently languishing in a Bermuda Triangle of Evaluation by All & Sundry, but meanwhile being considered for adaptation an animation film and possible TV series.

BE SURE TO CHEW BEFORE YOU SPEAK

I have been away for the last eight weeks working on a Greek island, completing the latest draft of my new book: The World According to Ned. It would be ungracious to say that progress has not been as fast it could due to a nest of baby scorpions, a bronchial Windows XP and a delightful incident where a lamb chop bone lodged in my throat. However, I can be ungracious, and it was nothing that a big broom, swarthy computer geek and two loaves of bread couldn’t fix!
