Since writing "Hand to Hand Combat" (previous post), in which Spymaster Wang spars against Sergeant Li, I have written three chapters of a spy thriller. This is a new departure and involves writing without a text to be translated ("The Battle of Chibi") or adapted ("Heaven is High"). This process has been engrossing and while writing it was hard to imagine doing anything else. I do not wish to clutter this blog with all of the writing, and all the re-writing, and so have taken advantage of the "preview" feature in Createspace and Authonomy, two websites of great help to writers.
The previews on Createspace have an upper limit on length
while those on Authonomy have a minimum length required
Both websites allow, indeed invite, comments.
