Progress

50267 words written... and Valkyrie and Skulduggery are barely in it.

This doesn't mean, of course, that they won't be taking their usual starring roles in Book 8. Of course they will. But I've had to approach this one in a slightly different way than normal.

Because this book is about, essentially, total war, I've had to think long and hard about how the different sides would fight— such as what tactics they would use in both the short and long term. It means I can't chop and change sequences like I usually would. If they're written, then they've been written for a very specific reason, and I can't mess about with that. So I figured the best way to write about these military actions is to write them FIRST. Write the skirmishes and the battles and the politics and the arguments, and get it all down on the page. Then, once I have the military aspect taken care of, I go back and write my usual Skul & Val stuff around and on top of it all.

It's an interesting way of working, to willingly ignore your main characters for large chunks of writing time. I sincerely hope it works...

Oh, and sometime in February I shall announce the title. I've had this title in mind for YEARS. Some of the early alternatives were:

Skulduggery Pleasant: The Billingsworth Continuum.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Behind Gold Eyes.

Skulduggery Pleasant: It's War, Baby.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Revenge of the Screaminator.

Skulduggery Pleasant: When Warlocks Attack.

Skulduggery Pleasant: A Very Nice Picnic.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Brain-Puncher.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Gut-Eater.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Skulduggery Goes Camping.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Things Get Nasty.

Skulduggery Pleasant: People Gonna Die.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Readers Gonna Cry.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Horace.


And amazingly, the actual title is better than ANY of those! I know, right?

barmybex said...

Cannot wait for book 8. Does sound like a strange way of writing - but if it works why not!
When are you announcing the tour dates? Especially MK in April. Need to know so I can book time off work if necessary. Not going to miss you this time!!!

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

Horace, I vote Horace. And a new focus? Colour me excited (: Excited to see how the war develops, please tell me Skul or Val have a go at politicians?

Noelle said...

*pokes the Doctor-Derek in the eye*

You're still my favourite :D

Line said...

Oh GOD, can you please! call it "It's war, Baby" or "People gonna die" or (even better) "Readers Gonna Cry" ? I think I would just love the book because of its title, regardless of how the book is (and of course i will also love it because of the story, just because you can't write bad books :D )

Flip and Bibble said...

I like these titles...they are epic...I think they would all suit the inner workings of the story completely (as if I knew what the inner workings of the story were)

Noelle said...

Haters gonna hate... There ya go. Winner title there.

not that anyone WOULD hate

flaring rhythm said...

Derek I cried at those titles oh god. I can just imagine the whole of book 8 being a really serene camping trip in the Mournes.
ASIDE FROM HILARIOUS TITLES- DO YOU ENJOY STABBING ME IN THE HEART WITH A SHATTERPROOF RULER? LITERALLY I CANNOT TAKE THE EMOTIONAL PAIN, DEREK.
THE /FEELS/

Flip and Bibble said...

Flaring, do not mention the feels...the feels have been attacking me for a while now...so many different feels...

Noelle said...

HEY EVERYBODY

*jumps on table*

*throws skulcakes to everyone*

PARTAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Flip and Bibble said...

SKULCAKES! PARTY! I SHOULD BE IN BED NOW!

Noelle said...

???? Alright, whatever floats yer boat... *eats skulcakes and jumps off a cliff into water*

flaring rhythm said...

THE FEELS JUST GET WORSE AND WORSE.
BY BOOK NINE WE WILL ALL BE DEAD, OR WORSE.
FORCED TO LIVE AND RE-READ ALL THE BOOKS UNTIL OUR HEARTS IMPLODE.
*runs out into the fields around my house, naked and screaming*
*but mainly naked*

Bye!!!
[Waves like a maniac]

Flip and Bibble said...

FLARING, NO, NOT THE FEELS! They are already killing me...I keep imagining Skul's family and how cute certain people would have been together if they hadn't died and what could have been and all the torture it ends up with...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

He left guys!

Flip and Bibble said...

...I think I'll flee to the safety of my duvet covers now, where I will be safe from everything but the feels...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Okay yea im on Twitter but like i feel the poor Bloglandians are left out

Snow said...

NOOO! the one night i dont check the blog, the mighty derik posts!!!!!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

"Skulduggery Goes Camping".



Oh my God, I would laugh so hard...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

He went on Twitter

Peanut Butter Girl said...

I vote for anything with Sparkles in the title. Like "Skulduggery Pleasant: When Sparkles Attack." Hey, is Derek still on here? I've never gotten into the top 50 comments before.

Snow said...

HORACE??? REALLY??? but lol 4 a very nice picnic...

Aishling Murphy said...

hell, son, it's got a certain ring to it, I'll say that.

skavalli said...

But Brain-Puncher was so poetic!

And Skulduggery Goes Camping makes me imagine beautiful Earl Oliver Hurst drawings. Such a tease.

Peanut Butter Girl said...

Or if not Sparkles, then something with Peanut Butter. Or Daywalkers. Or Harald 'Bluetooth' King of Denmark who lived a very long time ago and which Bluetooth is named after.

Peanut Butter Girl said...

Sprecking of which, is Skulduggery team Zombie or Team Unicorn?

Peanut Butter Girl said...

I can go on like this for a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

Peanut Butter Girl said...

And tell me, what is it with the murderous cutlery? Sporks are evil!

Snow said...

yep, i think i love ALL the names... derik if you read this, MAKE THEM ALL BOOKS!!!! please :) (never forget the power of the please)

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

OI! DEREK! DON'T IGNORE US!


I need to arrange to meet you! Like, it has to happen! Sometime soon! Also, you said you would meet up with me, not just at a signing. I'm flying halfway around the world for 18 hours. So we need to arrange an actual meeting!!!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Also, if it makes things easier, you COULD Skype me... I swear I won't tell anyone what your name thingy is. Anyway, mine is your.worst.nightmare98

Snow said...

*sigh* no one that talks to me is on.... oh well, just have to be crazy by my self

Peanut Butter Girl said...

You know, Derek, if you read this, know that I have some sense. As much as I like your books, I don't really feel like going out of my way to meet you. Just, no. I think I shall have French Fries for dinner now. Yup, it's only dinner time where I live. Mind flip.

Snow said...

well, its still early morning here in aus

Peanut Butter Girl said...

Hey, are you bugged yet? How about now? If you're smart you don't have this thing rigged to send you an e-mail every time someone posts a comment... I am in a buggy mood right now. Hey. Hey. Hi. How bout now?

Snow said...

well, i say early, but it's nearly 10:30am

Snow said...

and i bet no one cares...

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

I'm definitely going out of my way to meet him. I'm leaving from Washington State.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

It's 3:23 PM here.

Snow said...

when derik came on his aus tour, HE DIDN'T COME TO TASSIE!!!!! how haert broken was i...

Peanut Butter Girl said...

I give up. I have MORE IMPORTANT things to do anyway. But another good name would be 'Skulduggery Pleasant: The Greater Snowmen of the Universe." Bye.

barmybex said...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

6:26pm

Peanut Butter Girl said...

Oh, would you look at that. I sparked a time-telling comment chain. 5:26 here. Okay, good-bye for real this time.

Snow said...

OMG WHY AM I ONLY SEEING THIS POST NOW?!?!
All those titles are BRILLIANT!!
I really love them all. How can NONE of them be the title?!?!
I don't understand!!
Anyway, OMG THE TITLE IS OUT IN FEBRUARY OMG I AM GETTING SO SO EXCITED!!
Can I just have it now?!
PLEASE!!

barmybex said...

It's almost midnight here now! I'm gonna wait 5 more minutes to see if Derek appears before I go to bed. Have to get up for work in the morning. So Derek if you are here, come and say HI. Please. :D

P.S. What is your favourite flavour of cake?

Bekka said...

Ha! Warlocks! I must say I'm proud of myself for predicting that. Now I just need to read Kingdom of the Wicked again, luckily my brother hasn't read it so I can read it aloud and do the voices in my hopefully not terrible Irish accent.

Min (Thalia) said...

I dunno, Derek, I don't see how you can get much better than "Skulduggery Pleasant: Horace".

Niamhy Jay said...

Well Derek, if you are reading this: I am off to bed, and THANK YOU AGAIN!! For the twitter thing. You are the absolute BEST!!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Get your butt on Skype NJ

barmybex said...

LOL - makes me laugh whenever anyone says that. I can hear it in my head. 'What book do you want for your birthday?"
"Skulduggery Pleasant: Horace!"

LOL. Excellent. :D

Snow said...

lol, been watching youtube, so when i reloaded the page i got a heap of comments

barmybex said...

OK, I'm off for the night. Have a good day/morning/evening/night whatever it currently is for you.
:D

Snow said...

thx and byee

Zathract Mist said...

PEOPLE GONNA DIE!

I would seriously die of laughter if that was the title of Book 8.

That isn't to say that I'd be surprised, mind you.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

I think "Skulduggery Pleasant: Readers Gonna Cry" is going to be the most accurate...


But honestly, the camping one is brilliant.

Zathract Mist said...

[11:29:21 AM] Zathract Mist: People Gonna Die!
[11:29:31 AM] Rachel M: Readers Gonna Cry!
[11:29:37 AM] Zathract Mist: ...Horace.

MonsterMouse said...

I don't think anything can top
Skulduggery Pleasant: Horace

MonsterMouse said...

Those would actually make good chapter titles...

Snow said...

okay, gonna go now sooo... bye

Raechel Hudson said...

Lol, I would love the Billlingsworth Continuum, or Revenge of the Screaminator. Both considerably mysterious and odd. Extremely suited to Skulduggery in my humble opinion ^_^

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Lol knowing Derek he's gonna be sadistic

Nixion Strange said...

DEREK

If you're going to mention Mist in one of your books, you should know that Mist is best friends are partner with Nixion, so if you mention one, you've got to mention the other
Oh, and you're awesome.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

DEREK DEREK!!!! You better answer! Does Mevolent have a first name? Oh and if he had a wife would he have children?

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

It's War, Baby *laughs*

I love them all...

AND WAAAAAAAAAAAAAR

OH MY GOLDEN GOD WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR


Hullo. :D

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

*sighs*

Gtg...

Dragonheart said...

I personally like Skulduggery Pleasant: Horace. It has a nice ring to it. Horace. Hor-ace. horace.
Huh.
Well whatever the title is, It's going to be awesomely epic. That's a fact. I'm so excited! :D

Dragonheart said...

Oh. Btw, Hey guys, girls, and creatures of unidentifiable origin! How's life?

Derek Landy said...

Just a quick note before bedtime- Val V, when are you coming over? Because I haven't forgotten, don't you fret.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

"People Gonna Die" "Readers Gonna Cry"
I like those two consecutively.
DEREK.
DEREK.
DEREK.
DEREK.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

OHMYGOSH DEREK LANDY HI!!!!!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

DETEK!!!

Alastair Cruciatus said...

I JUST PRESSED THE REFRESH BUTTON ABOUT 12 TIMES IN ONE MINUTE, JUST IN CASE YOU REPLY.
HI HI HI HI HI!!!!!!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

DEREK!! Smart one she's coming the beginning of April from what she told me :P around when signings for TMS are

Nixion Strange said...

Goodnight Derek!
Kill the bedbugs, and I find that if you roast them well, they taste quite good
Keep that in mind

Alastair Cruciatus said...

IT IS NOT PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE FOR ME TO PRESS THE REFRESH BUTTON ANY MORE OFTEN THAN I AM DOING NOW. I LITERALLY PRESS IT AGAIN THE SECOND THE PAGE IS DONE REFRESHING.

Dragonheart said...

DEREK! Hi derek! How's life?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Aretha he's probably gone to bed the bugger ah well

DAMN IT DEREK!!! In starting to TALK like you Irish people

Alastair Cruciatus said...

But I was so close... T.T

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I know :( damn it Landy you could have stayed i dont think sleep is that important

NOM Ominous said...

Hiya. . .

Dragonheart said...

Noooooooo!
*sobs*
Derek how could you leave us?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hi Thrust!

*sits in tree*

I HAVE RETURNED TO THY TREE

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

*sighs*

Here i was hoping he'd tell me if Mevolent had a first name ah well NEXT TIME

NOM Ominous said...

I totally predicted predicted the Readers Gonna Cry title.

And the Camping one.

It couldn't be Horace, though. I'd just have to stare at it until I realized the word Slughorn wasn't going to appear.

Alastair Cruciatus said...

Well, this is depressing...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Aretha always next time it IS quarter to 2am his time

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

AHHH! DEREK RESPONDED!


I'm going to be there for eight days somewhere in the time period of March 30th and April 7th. And I DO realise you'll be having signings for the Tanith novella, but...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

HAHAHAH LANDY I TOLD YOU!!!!

Sorry I said beginning of April :P Zaffy aint stupid

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Val you should totally Skype me one day when you meet him

Nah not really I'm alrekady meeting him when NJ and Em go in April at Dublin

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

I might go to a Dublin signing...

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Oh! God you willing to Skype me xD seriously my plan is to terrify Derek i rather meet him in person but i dot mind Skype

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

It'll be the same one as they're going to if its beginning of April, Zaf.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Ah right sorry im half asleep got 4hrs of sleep im honestly losing it

Damn okay between one of you someone Skype me and find out the date

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

We don't know the dates yet...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Sorry Zaffy making no sense okay maybe i need to go back sobbing from Les Mes

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Zaf's Casual Musical Outburst

There out in the darkness a fugitive running fallen from god

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

No worries. As a psychopath, I am fully aware of the affects of insanity.


Not that you all couldn't tell.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Aah no I was told by Derek i have issues and im disturbed

Em plans to get me in trouble again xD i am innocent

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Derek said he was concerned for my mental well-being.

I feel so special.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I was told off for blowing up Ireland except he technicaly couldnt because my REFLECTION did it

Thank god he hasnt gotten my letter yet... I had a whole thing on how my reflection blew up Ireland

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hmm KOTW or UK Version of Book 1?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Okay before i go

DEREK!! I am legit scared to death for Book 8 partly because I'm scared to see who you kill off and what country wins this war...

NIGHT EVERYONE

NOM Ominous said...

Well, I believe I am all done stalking Derek's Twitter page for today.

Derek, you make it so difficult.

Lavender Hope said...

Oh my gosh, when I read that Skul and Val aren't even in it yet and that a war's going on, you completely had me thinking that you were going to have bits of the stories from Mevolent's Collaboration in it!

Obviously not though. Don't know why I thought that.

Love the titles! XP

Lavender Hope said...

Oh yeah, first page!

And I don't even know what's going on in the series now. Book seven totally changed the way the series was going.
*makes a mental note to ask her mom to buy her the book sometime soon*

I WANNA READ KOTW SO BAD NOW.

NOM Ominous said...

He said they were barely in the book.

NOM Ominous said...

Hi Lav

Jophiel said...

Damn you Derek... Damn you...

Lavender Hope said...

Hi Thrust. And oh. Well, yeah, and he said he'd add them more into it later.

Hi Death!

Sorry, I'll be distant.

NOM Ominous said...

I will be eating. Oatmeal. . .

Jophiel said...

I'm very gone... Matt Smith is scolding Rory for dissing the sonic...

*Fangirls*

Lavender Hope said...

Oatmeal sounds good about now.

DW... I really should try to watch it.

My mom said maybe!!! :DDD For buying KOTW!!! YAY! I just gotta send a link to it.

NOM Ominous said...

Whoa, finally!
You won't be too disappointed.

NOM Ominous said...

Ugh. I think it's bad to say I'm in love with this...

*facepalm* Sorry. I don't usually do this, but I had to. as I said...

Azazel Infariel said...

come on guys i wanna see skulduggery go camping

NOM Ominous said...

I had a dream once where Skulduggery took me to school on the Knight Bus.
He took me to the wrong school, but it was A school. Or maybe a hospital.
I thought it was a school.

Lavender Hope said...

*laughs*
That would be interesting to read about.

What's that, Thrust?

Lavender Hope said...

The camping thing. And I was talking about the link.

Interesting dream though.

NOM Ominous said...

The link... uh.. it's for my new story thing... which I talk about in great shallowness on my all-new blog post.
http://shockerlocker-turn-back-now.blogspot.ca/

Lavender Hope said...

Didn't make sense at all...

It would be interesting to read about Skulduggery going camping and I was asking about the link. Not the dream.

NOM Ominous said...

I wanted to force myself to write a story so I spoiled everyone into telling me they were excited for a new story.
Whether they're honest or not, I think whatever anyone says about the pic would make me write it.

NOM Ominous said...

and I understood. Are you in love with the pic too?
I know... I know...

NOM Ominous said...

WHO WOULDN'T BE?!

Unknown said...

Great! Im 159

NOM Ominous said...

Bravo.

Lavender Hope said...

Hi Ally!

Wow, that's cool, Thrust!

Is the first pic supposed to be a video? Cause I can't tell on my iPod and my battery's about to die.

Lavender Hope said...

I think I'm going to charge it now, but I'll have to leave too. Sorry.

Bye!

Also, I'm bugging Fabi, so wbd.

Sapphire Iota (S/ Cam) said...

Hi! Horace? I'm not even going to ask...
I KNEW the Warlocks would come back! I have this list of things that could go wrong in the next SP book, and the Warlocks are heading that list :)
Something funny happened today. I was talking with this new girl in class. Then I opened up my computer. She saw the desktop background (Val and Skul) and went 'Oh, that's from Skulduggery Pleasant, isn't it?'
I hugged her :)

Blogland Collaboration said...

Hi!!!
(is Shai)

Jophiel said...

Hug her for me!!

Jophiel said...

Hiya Shai!

Jophiel said...

Sorry Shai, mental blank...

What is your taken name again?

*Facepalm*
I'm a douchè!

Blogland Collaboration said...

Ok! *hugs Fabi*

She says hi. She can't come on now, she has one more piece to perform, then finale, then she'll get her makeup off, then hopefully she can come and say hi in person.

Sapphire Iota (S/ Cam) said...

Hi Shai! Hi Death! *hugs*

Blogland Collaboration said...

Shaida Neverlyss

Blogland Collaboration said...

Hi Saph! *hugs*

Jophiel said...

Yay!!

Sapphire Iota (S/ Cam) said...

Good luck to Fabi! She sounds like an amazing dancer

Jophiel said...

That's right!!!!!
*Facepalm*

I couldn't remember!!!
*Sticks head in cold water*
Damn school in three days...

Blogland Collaboration said...

Yep, she is. Definitely!
I'll tell her you said that, but she's already backstage, so it won't really be until after she's already rocked the house.
Brb, going to watch.
Two minutes.

Blogland Collaboration said...

It's ok.

Blogland Collaboration said...

SHE DID GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, back.

Sapphire Iota (S/ Cam) said...

Bye Shai! Wish I was there. See you in a minute :) Msd, dinner soon

Sapphire Iota (S/ Cam) said...

Oh, you're back :)

Blogland Collaboration said...

I wish you were here, too.

Blogland Collaboration said...

Yeah, the dances are only a couple minutes long.

They take ages to learn, though.

Sapphire Iota (S/ Cam) said...

I used to do dance, but I stopped a few years ago.

Blogland Collaboration said...

Ok, I have to line up for finale. I was only in one dance near the beginning of this one, and I did a sort of ehh job, but I have to bow anyway... How annoying!

See you later-ish!

Blogland Collaboration said...

Cool! I'll interrogate you about it in a bit!

Sapphire Iota (S/ Cam) said...

Gtg, dinner
