Events 'n' Things

Ooooh, I haven’t blogged in AGES….!

So, what’s been happening in my crazy, crazy life? Well, on the writer side of things, I’ve been doing a few events, including being a guest at the Prize day for Ardgillan College- a school pretty close to where I live- and Drogheda Grammar School- the school I went to.

Ardgillan was fun, with everyone ready to laugh at the nonsense spewing out of my mouth when I got up to make my speech. Which was nice of them.

Going back to the DGS, the school I’d attended from age 12 to 18, was a blast. Most of my teachers are still there, which is endlessly amusing. They pretty much look the same as they did 18 years ago. Wow. 18 years. That’s a VERY long time. I feel so, so old…

But I had a laugh, which is the main thing, and being invited back to make the speech at Prize Day was lovely. For years after school I always felt like a failure, because I was working on the family farm, writing in my spare time, but having nothing to show for it. Most of my classmates had gone on to college or apprenticeships or proper jobs, and there was I, working for my dad, growing more and more miserable.

The good thing about working for my dad, though, was that he understood my need to be a writer, and he tended to be amused instead of annoyed when he’d realize my mind was far, far away at any given moment. I daydreamed a LOT when I was on the farm- that’s how I wrote- and I’m lucky that he understood that.

That notion of being a failure diminished somewhat when I got two movies made, and then vanished entirely when I wrote Skulduggery. No longer did I have the urge to prove myself to old friends or teachers. It was like a massive weight was lifted from my shoulders, like something petty and nasty and selfish suddenly vanished from my mind. I still show off- oh dear GOD how I show off- but now I do it to amuse myself, not to brag or boast or to demonstrate that I've made it. Now I show off in order to watch the reaction on other people’s faces- which is FUN.

On Saturday I was at the Wicklow Arts Festival, an event that went very well, and I met so many cool people in the signing queue afterwards. Bradley gave me a book he’d published himself, there was an AWESOME Skulduggery-girl and Little-Valkyrie in costume, and two hilariously awesome girls came along in Skulduggery T-shirts they’d made themselves. We went WAY over our allotted time for signing but it was so worth it.

Event-wise, I have nothing on until Edinburgh in August, and then the Ireland/UK/Germany dates in September/October. Which means I have time to write! Yay!

My editor and agent should be getting back to me with notes on the second draft of Death Bringer in the next week or two, and I should be getting Laura’s notes any day now, so hopefully the next draft will be the last.

Once it’s finished, though, I still have work to do. There are a few Skulduggery-related things I need to take care of, and I’d really like to start a brand new, non-Skulduggery book- but then I’ve been saying that for YEARS and I still haven’t had enough time. Oh well- maybe THIS year…

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

I learnt another book by heart a few days ago by the same author of the Gruffalo.

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Room on the Broom :) I think I've heard of that one... Haven't read it though :)

As a kid I used to know Peace At Last off by heart... I've forgotten it now though... :(

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

I want to learn The Walrus and the Carpenter off by heart :) By Louis Carroll :) I love that poem.

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

Jay(Pan)Pantera said...

Coincidence?

...

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

The Walrus and the carpenter

....

We'll talk of many things.
Like shoes and ships and sealing wax
And cabbages and kings
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.

....

Tis all I know

Krane Farlin said...

*wonders coincidence?

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

I didn't know that.

Interesting though

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

That is a brilliant coincidence :D

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

*sings*

I remember the times we spent together
All those drives, we had a million questions
All about our lives
And when we got to New York everything felt right
I wish you were here with me,
Tonight

I remember the days we spent together,
Were not enough, and it used to feel like dreaming
Except we always woke up,
Never thought not having you here now
Would hurt so much

Tonight I've fallen and I can't get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up
And know the stars are
Holding you, holding you, holding you
Tonight

I remember the time you told me
About when you were eight
And all those things you said that night
That just couldn't wait
I remember the car you were last seen in
And the games we would play
All the times we spilled our coffees
And stayed out way too late

I remember the time you sat and told me
About your Jesus, and how not to look back
Even if no one believes us
When it hurts so bad, sometimes
Not having you here

I sing
Tonight I've fallen and I can't get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up
And know the stars are
Holding you, holding you, holding you
Tonight

I sing
Tonight I've fallen and I can't get up
I need your loving hands to come and pick me up
And every night I miss you
I can just look up
And know the stars are
Holding you, holding you, holding you
Tonight

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Isabella Midnight said...

DRAGONA BLACKMAILED QUINN!

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

Yes yes he did.

Hey all!

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

*throws rock at the disintigrating internet*

WORK!

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Hi again Octa!

We're cool now. He was just doing what he thought was best because I was having another depressive relapse and I said some stuff and he was only trying to help. But it's fine now.

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Brb

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

Sorry for slow response. Doing a billion other thigs.
*continues to fold paper airplains everytime teacher looks away*

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Back

June Clarence said...

Okay... I think there might be something wrong with my eyes.

I DID just read "Germany" and "September/October" right? OH MY GOSH! I WILL be there this time. If I can drive all the way to Berlin for Hugh Laurie, I can do it again for you (though I would love it if you could come to Munich or maybe Frankfurt).

Glad you had fun at those events. Going back to your old school is always great. I once visited my former German teacher to give her a self-printed version of my first novel (which won`t ever be published) and she actually hugged me and asked me to sign it. What a feeling! And to think that you get that All. The. Freaking. Time! Woah.

I hope you`ll be able to publish those dates for the tour SOON. (Right now would be a great time, for example)

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

LOL Dragona. ;)

Thanks!

*sees something purple and wonderful nearby*


OCTA!!!


*leaps at him for a hug*




*screams crazily as she misses and flys right on by*


*lands on floor behind him*


Hmmm...nice wood floor!

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

*wonders where Kallista and Octa have gone*

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

KALLISTA! YOU HAVE RETURNED! :P

Now... *waits for the Purple Poet*

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Ah. I'm here Quinn. But not for long!
:P
Gotta go! Will see all you lovely people later!

Bye!
*hugs*
:D

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Awww... BYE KALLISTA!!! COME BACK SOON!! *hugs*

ooh ur touring australia?? say hi 2 bindi irwin 4 me?

Kribu said...

Oh dear, and I'm in the UK in July, which means probably no more trips abroad this year for me... one of these days/years I'm going to have to plan my yearly holiday around your book signings!

...uh, not that I'm wanting to sound stalkery or anything. But it'd be soooooo cool. :D Even if I'd probably be the oldest person there, or something, but hey, one's never too old for cool stuff.

Anyway, new book?! Ooh! I mean, we're all going to want something to read once the Skulduggery series comes to an end (the thought of which, frankly, makes me shed some tears, but I do realise it has to happen some day!).

Anonymous said...

Derek!
You need to come to Newcastle-Upon-Tyne for a book signing or an event or anything, I have to meet you. xD

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

*hums* Empty blog...

Jenni said...

What a great post...and very inspiring/encouraging/various other 'ing' words that have positive connotations!

I'm in the '$%#$# I'm never going to get anywhere' phase myself, and for some reason knowing that my favorite writers weren't born into the gilded cradle of literary success is...well, see above.

And I don't think there's a single Skulduggery fan who wouldn't salivate equally hard over any other book your cranked out. Bring it on!

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

Chat has died on me all together :(

Oh dear Octa, I am confused.

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

:( How's Kallista's chat for you?

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

I just felt like quoting back.

And that's the only one I could.

It has no relevance to anything.

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

LOL :D

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

That doesn't work either.

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Alas... (believe it or not, I yelled that in the middle of a maths lesson. I got some very odd looks...)

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

Octaboona Ambrosius- Paragon Of The Purple Horde said...

You were 12th last time I remember.

But possibly 7th.

I keep changing the order of the list to reflect the current importance of the people. And you keep becoming more important.

Plus I write for the higher people who then leave the list so everyone increases then.

There seems to be something wrong with everyone's internet, mine's not working well either... Maybe it's ganging up against us... Damn! It's the snake incident all over again!

Hi everybody!
Hmmm...I think I need a chat with Quinn. IF she comes on, I hope she comes to chat. You too, Octa.

or the wrath of some evil army of giants that are hellbent on your destruction

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Back!

But I gotta go soon...

DogsLikeBones said...

Hello whatever-blogger-may-be-on!

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Quinn here :)

Bethany said...

I think it's great that your dad understood your desire to write, but our Golden God could never have been a failure.

I really wish you could come to Belfast. Le sad. I've never met an author before, never mind one I like/love.

DogsLikeBones said...

Hey Quinn! Nice to meet you! *shakes hand politely in a hope to not scare you away*

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Hi DogsLikeBones! *shakes hand* I may have to leave abruptly.... sorry :)

DogsLikeBones said...

Yeah I've only got like 10 mins left but I'll probably be here later
TeeHee, I made an online friend...

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

LOL :) Aaah!! TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!!!

DogsLikeBones said...

I wish I could freeze time...
But then we couldn't comment could we? If time froze so would all of the other things like the internet, right?

Fáinche said...

Hey Derek :)
(Kinda intimidated by all the crazy peeps here :P)
Just wondering if you have any advice for a beginner in the writing business. I love writing, especially things with monsters and ghouls (much like yourself) and I'd really like to hear your side of it :)
- Oh, and I forgot to add, Im a huge fan ;D

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

LOL, I suppose. Maybe if we made time go in really slow motion... that would be cool :)

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Don't be intimidated, Fáinche! :P

DogsLikeBones said...

But then we'd take forever to comment!

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

No, because we'd be in normal speed, everyone else would be slow...

See?

DogsLikeBones said...

No need to be intimidated! We're harmless through the internet!

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

Gotta go... BYE!

Quinnera Elviana: 5th Seat in the Council of the Lost Ones said...

And if Octa comes on...

OCTA! TALK TO KALLISTA! :D

DogsLikeBones said...

Ahhhh... Makes more sense... We should work on that little experiment...

DogsLikeBones said...

See ya!

DogsLikeBones said...

Is it just my computer that goes back to the first page of comments every time I post?

Isabella Midnight said...

It happens to mine

Taia-DeMars said...

Hi Derek!!
Hi anyone else who just happens to read this!!

*Eats cookie*
Hehehe... Cookies are nice...

DogsLikeBones said...

So it's not just me... aw well
HI Taia! Hi Isabella!

Taia-DeMars said...

It does it with me too!

DogsLikeBones said...

Hmm... Maybe the Golden God can fix this little annoyance for us with his super-special-awesome powers

DogsLikeBones said...

Oh no the time!
Got to go!

Taia-DeMars said...

maybe... just maybe...

Taia-DeMars said...

Oh... Bye!!
