It’s a beautiful image, something that you can play with, I just need the opportunity to plagiarise it.
I find it beautifully visual and wonderfully emotive all at the same time.
And as it’s a reference to an artist of some renown, Julian Cope, who will appear as a character somewhere in ‘Prison’.
This little missive was provisionally titled with reference to Mister Edgar A Poe and his dream within a dream poem, especially the grains of golden sand line, but indie guitar pop won out in the end – take a bow Julian Cope!
Time has inexorably plodded onwards, and the waves still crash on my shore, and the sand still falls between my fingers, and we’ve now had another silent refusal, another aspiration nullified…
I know in sending my script that I agreed to the ‘if you don’t hear from us, consider it a no…’, I did, and I do.
However, rejection is bad enough, but the silent rejection is harsh – it really is!
It is constant amongst my musings, a theme that will probably remain up and until I strike it lucky…
We have the next application in draft, we continue unabashed.
I’ve been writing, moving stories along, reacting to reviews, and where possible making the necessary amendments.

Whenever I warmed up the keyboard, it was a little fiery woman who near exclusively dominated.
We are four complete books to the good, scribbling with a purpose number five, and titivating six, seven and eight.
My passion to tell tall tales continues, I am still enjoying the whole putting my imagination into structured form, and despite the rejection(s) I still take succour from the support of those who’ve read and enjoyed my stories.
The next step is a big one, but a small one too.
My hands are on the ladder…
