Under Pressure... Moi?

Glancing back at old Blog entries, I happened to notice that on December 23rd of 2012 I had 13,320 words of LSODM written. This was a good thing to notice. It means that, with 18,504 words of Book 9 already spewed forth onto the page/screen, I am well ahead of where I was last year — and I finished LSODM in PLENTY of time, did I not?

Well, actually, no, I didn't. It was pretty much down to the wire, as they say. I couldn't afford to make ANY mistakes with LSODM, because I had no time to do anything resembling a significant rewrite. But at least I know it can be done. At least I know I can do it. Now all I have to do is hope I DO do it.

Pressure pressure pressure... It's everywhere. I don't actually mind pressure. It's a handy tool to make you sit down and write, after all. And I have no one to blame for these onrushing deadlines but me, because I'm the one who agreed to them in the first place. I'm the one who said "Hey, let's collect all the short stories, and I'll write a few more brand new ones, and we can publish in the summer before the final book!" And what a wonderful idea that was. What a magical, wonderful idea, to schedule the writing of short stories at the same time as I've scheduled the writing of a book. How clever that was.

I had wanted to include ten new stories in the collection. I STILL want to do ten — but the fact is, I might not be able to. I may only be able to do five. I want to tell a tale of the Dead Men during the war. I want to tell the tale of Billy-Ray Sanguine and what he did when he was recovering from the sword-wound that Valkyrie inflicted on him in The Faceless Ones. I want to show you how Val met Caelan for the first time. But most of all, I want to go back to Skulduggery and Valkyrie, back before the screaming and the killing and the darkness. I want to see them having fun again, before the death and the destruction and the heartache and the loss. The collection will be out mere months before the final book, after all... I want you to enter into Book 9, fully aware of how good it used to be between them.

And then I want to shatter what remains of your souls.

FIRST!!

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Derek, we don't have any souls left. You destroyed those with LSODM, remember? Now we're all walking around waiting for a Remnant to come and fill in that empty space lacking a soul, so we can come after you for it.


Either way, I'm excited for the short stories!

Jubilance Glee said...

3RD
WHOO

Thrust Ominous said...

Derek.
Take as much time as you need to rewrite. I want the best ending to Skulduggery possible.

Duck said...

Take as much time as you need, Derek. I like it if you put off my suffering until... 2015

Cassidy Clarimonde (Self-Appointed Grand Mage of the Scottish Sanctuary) said...

Closest I've ever been to the top. Hi everyone! ;)

Exeenera Dawn said...

Third?!

Exeenera Dawn said...

No, seventh...

Thrust Ominous said...

Well, don't push it off THAT long.

Exeenera Dawn said...

I'm worried about this ninth book... I'm really excited, but my life will be empty after. I won't know what to do!!

Jubilance Glee said...

Oh gee Derek... thanks for that...

But like Val said, I don't have a should left for you to shatter... so there's not much you can do about that...
sorry

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

I probably should read now

Jubilance Glee said...

Hey, hey Derek
Y'know what'd be AWESOME?

If you came on...

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! D:

#ChaseForBookNine

Duck said...

I am liking the ideas you are having with the short stories. I'ld love to read a good Dead Men story that isn't a flashback...

Cassidy Clarimonde (Self-Appointed Grand Mage of the Scottish Sanctuary) said...

Derek, one day, you shall be punished for shattering and crushing our souls. You'll be given a soul. And that's when you'll want to write a book 10.

Exeenera Dawn said...

I agree with Jubilance, Derek...

Please come online. It would complete my life...

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Btw, people, you know my story?

I just realised I have no clue where I'm going with it.

Also, I realised I left out another vital thing that needed to be in it.

So, that's two things that NEEDED to be in it, and neither of them are.

Yeahhhh . . .

And I'm over 50 A4 pages in, size eleven font, single spaced. So I reckon, if I was writing LSODM instead of my story, I'd been about a hundred pages in.

Yeah . . . :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Because LSODM is A5, like most books, you know. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Jubilance Glee said...

C'MON DEREK! YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ON IN AGESS!

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Personally, I'm trying not to think about the short story collection too much. It makes me not want it as much. :) WANTING IT IS BAD, BECAUSE I CAN'T HAVE IT.

#ChaseForBookNine

Jubilance Glee said...

Same here Star... -_-

smashedxbunny said...

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

YES DEREK COME ON!!!!!! I WANT YOU TO COME ON YOU NEVER DO

Guys remember we used to chant his name? Sacrifice our sanity? Lets do it again!

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Jubi: :)

You're right about Derek coming on. But I'd rather get more short stories and him come on less, personally. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Jubilance Glee said...

(Ahem we all know who is playing Zafira)

Exeenera Dawn said...

Mr Derek Landy, soon I shall be reduced to I dignified begging. I don't think my ego could take it. You do NOT wish to see me beg. It is a painful, heart aching sight, and I REALLY don't think my ego could take it. And... It is very hard to make me beg, so consider yourself honoured.

Jubilance Glee said...

Indeed we do, Zaffy xP

Duck said...

Oh, yes. Movie news! GIVE US MOVIE NEWS DEREK!!!

Then we won't be as depressed :)

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

As Grand Mage of America I hereby ORDER you to come on or else this gets serious. You do not want to see what I will do, remember who Justaria is. *innocent smile*

Jubilance Glee said...

GIVE US MOVIE NEWS WHILW COMMENTING! IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED BY YOUR LOYAL MINIONS!

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

YES COMMENT PLEASE!!!!!!! PLEASE??? *gets on hands and knees* Oh most wonderful loving Golden God, please grace us with you awesomeness on this Blog! *offers up my firstborn, Alexis* I offer Alexis! She's a Sensitive!

Exeenera Dawn said...

*begging* Please Please Please, Derek. Movie News would be absolutely AMAZINGLY BRILLIANT, but even you just coming online would make my YEAR. Please, I know you want to put a smile on my face. :'/

Sykamere Dark said...

COME ON DEREK WOULD IT KILL YOU TO MAKE JUST ONE COMMENT?!?!

Cassidy Clarimonde (Self-Appointed Grand Mage of the Scottish Sanctuary) said...

And kinda old people, Luce ;)

Jubilance Glee said...

(Omg Zaf xD)

General Luciana Clover Scáth/Livi Delicae; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Queen Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia said...

CASSIDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! *attacklehugs*

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

(Hey stroke the ego it usually helps egoistic people)

Oh most wonderful Golden God, I beg for thee to grace us with thy awesomeness

Sykamere Dark said...

Derek have you read Misery by Steven King? Do you know the plot? Well something similar will happen if you don't come here.

Cassidy Clarimonde (Self-Appointed Grand Mage of the Scottish Sanctuary) said...

*embraces attacklehug*

Duck said...

Well, after some 60 comments of begging I doubt he WIL come on....

So I'm off. I've got EXAMS to do...

ALLONS-Y!

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Yea MISERY WILL HAPPEN

Sir Reingington said...

Mr. Landy, you have already proven yourself devious enough. Please spare us the fragmented remains of our souls?

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Christmas it took a while....NEVER GIVE UP HOPE

Jubilance Glee said...

...
Please Derek? :(

Sykamere Dark said...

Derek if you come here I will give you my favourite sword. It doesn't look like much, it's just a battered wooden training sword, but it has TONS of sentimental value and I would be willing to give it to you if you came here.

If not that very sword will be used against you.

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Please Derek? PLEASE?

I even told Holly you're being mean! WHAT WILL YOU DO YOU CANT EVEN FIGHT YOUR OWN BATTLE YOU DIDNT FOLLOW ME

Sykamere Dark said...

It was my birthday yesterday, so you must come.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

HOLLY WILL DIE IF YOU DONT COME ON

Sykamere Dark said...

Sykamere Dark said...

Cassidy Clarimonde (Self-Appointed Grand Mage of the Scottish Sanctuary) said...

I volunteer as Tribute! Though we can all do it :D

Jubilance Glee said...

SYKAMERE! GO TO HOLLY'S HOUSE AND KIDNAP HER!

Sykamere Dark said...

It'd be easy for me.

Exeenera Dawn said...

Please, I will have to leave in the next five minutes. Please, your stories make my life. What I want to do is thank the man who created those stories, for the storyteller reflects himself in his stories, the man who made my life. Even though I have not met you, the most I have been able to do is feel the pages beneath my fingertips, smell the paper, and read the stories. I want to thank the creator, as I the reader, can do nothing more, than hope.

Sykamere Dark said...

*Picks up sword and runs outside screaming an epic battle cry*

*Comes back inside*

Where does she live?

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Okay Syk go to her flat and kidnap her she lives in London. Then hack her phone and tweet Derek how she's captive and he has 1 hour to comment on the Blog or we kill her

Jubilance Glee said...

I... Don't know..

Dammit

OK ZAF!

Sykamere Dark said...

Um, it would take me about three hours to get to London but I know it inside-out.

Well city centre anyway.

Cassidy Clarimonde (Self-Appointed Grand Mage of the Scottish Sanctuary) said...

I suppose I'll go and do something else then. Probably murder someone.

Bye everyone!

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Yeah I give up at this point we tried he as usual ignores us and will use the whole Twitter is easier book and blah blah blah and then he'll tweet away and ignore us here

Amethyst Temerity said...

are you guys trying to get derek to come on?

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Were. He doesn't anymore.

Bye Syk!

*nods*

Anyway let's move on before Zaf goes on about how unfair it is

Jubilance Glee said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Amethyst Temerity said...

how often does derek show up though?

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Never. Hasn't in months.

Well, once. But... Nevermind that

Exeenera Dawn said...

I'm still here. And after all those inspiring speeches, he doesn't care. Why does he prefer twitter anyway?

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

ANYWAY

*bites Jubi's shoulder*

Exeenera Dawn said...

Please

Jubilance Glee said...

Ow! *rubs shoulder*

NO NEED FO VIOLENCE ADRA!

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Dawn, he proabably left. He probably didn't see the speeches. The chances of him showing up are nil. If you are that eager, I suggest getting a twitter. Otherwise, he won't come


NOW PLEASE

can we change the subject

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

there is always a need for violence :D

Jubilance Glee said...

OK OK

HOW GOES IT? :D

Jubilance Glee said...

....

Exeenera Dawn said...

Derek, this is the first time I've commented in years... I've read your bog every single day, and when you blogged something new, I'd be so happy. Please. I just want one chance to speak to you. I am still here.

P.S. I will not walk away, out of sheer stubbornness, so I'd come on if I were you...

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

MAYA ANGELOU IS THE BEST, ADORABLEST

Jubilance Glee said...

.. Isn't she that poet?

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

I don't think you guys are being fair. He just wrote a blog post saying how little time he has, and the reason he has so little is because he's making a short story book for us as well as his normal one. He really wants to do the best he can for us, but he's restricted because of time. And you guys want him to use up the little time he has talking to us AND still get everything done?
Don't you think it's just horrible to attack him like this less than an hour (it was at the beginning) after he's just come on saying he has no time to do anything?
He's a much better author, in terms of communicating with his fanbase, than many of them are. Give the poor guy some peace. Believe it or not, unlike us, he has a LIFE. Why should we be the centre of his world?

It's like . . . we needed an apple, and we've been given one the size of a house, and now we're complaining because we only have one of them.

What the fuck.

#ChaseForBookNine

Exeenera Dawn said...

Great, I've given up.

WHO DO YOU EXPECT WILL DIE IN BOOK NINE, PEOPLE??!!!

Jubilance Glee said...

Exeenera, he's probably not coming on. If he hasn't already then he probably won't later, so..

Jubilance Glee said...

EVERYONE.

EVERY.

Maralie Lily Charm, Princess of the Flowers, Diana ❤ said...

I feel so worthless rn. Idk.

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Star ily


As in, "I know why the Caged Bird sings"

And poet

Maralie Lily Charm, Princess of the Flowers, Diana ❤ said...

I agree with Star.

I think Derek has enough things to worry about and enough things to do than to be plagued by the people who are supposed to be his "fans".

I think he'd be here if he had time.

Jubilance Glee said...

Point taken, Star :)

Jubilance Glee said...

*Taken and agreed with :P

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Adra: :) Thanks. Ily tooooooo. :)

Hey Mara! :)
You're not worthless. You're worth a lot. You're worth stuff to me, to all of us; surely that means something? If my life had never heard of Maralie Lily Charm, my life would be a darker think, with less beauty and stars (stars, not Stars. I'm a Star, you're a star) in it.
Well, if I HAD a life, it would, but . . . :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Exeenera Dawn said...

I feel so bad... I'm sorry, I'm just really eager...

Jubilance Glee said...

*Supermegatacklehugsofdoom Mara*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*hugs Mara* :) Thanks. :)

@Jubi: *hugs* Thanks. :) That's fine, though, to yell at him, I think. You know, yelling like WE'LL GIVE YOU COOKIES!!!!
Just . . . trying to guilt trip him and stuff is just . . . stuff.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

*points to what Star said*


Juba-Tuba, *pokes*

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Well he just as he put it: The Blog is awkward where Twitter isn't

I don't see why but....I give up i mean we always can try next post I meam he skims the commemts from what he said when I spoke on Skype but I guess maybe seeing his name jump at him may help but...eh. I suggest get Twitter to be honest i know kids can't but...if you wanna talk to Derek you get Twitter it's just how it is

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Exeenera; That's fine. :) Eagerness is good. :)

I love your name. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Zaf: Yeah. :)

JUBA-TUBA! :) Good nickname! :)

Hunter just got his hand burnt off and he was like hmm, interesting. XD

#ChaseForBookNine

Jubilance Glee said...

Yeah... Well I didn't mean to guilt trip him by saying he's made us disappointed but now that you mention it.. it kinda sounds like it :P

Exeenera Dawn said...

Star- thanks :) I spent ages trying to thing of it... Hug?

Jubilance Glee said...

TUBAS!

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Well to te new people I am Zafira Kerias Grand Mage of America, Twitter child of Derek and Holly

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Exeenera: Hug. :) *hugs*
Well, I did a survey for my taken surname and asked loads of people, and then I disregarded the survey and just picked something else. XD Fail. :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Interestingly enough, Eve did a similar thing where she asked loads of people which surname they liked best, and then ignored the voting . . . :)

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

EZTER


Yeah... Guilt tripping is a no no

Jubilance Glee said...

Nice, Star xD
I didn't really come up with my name.. Seph kinda helped me xP

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

We love Eve

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Exeenera well glad to have you over here! If you see s few names from LSODM on here its true we were in the book we're real people.

Jubilance Glee said...

My dad says he's making goulash...

WTF IS GOULASH?!
AND... WHY!?!

Exeenera Dawn said...

I think your name is unique and... Well... BRIGHT!!!!

Maralie Lily Charm, Princess of the Flowers, Diana ❤ said...

I don't know.

I just feel really horrible right now.

I need a constant reminder that not everyone hates me.

I'm always so paranoid about that.

Amethyst Temerity said...

how did you guys end up in LSODM?
(for the people who turned up in that book)

Exeenera Dawn said...

Zaf- I know, I've been on here a while, but never really commented... I am really honoured, by the way to be talking to the Grand Mage f America AND the creator of Hayley Skirmish. *bows*

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

What makes you think that, Marsa? :/

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Derek put me in without me knowing

I was like- "oh ha. Yeah. I don't know how to walk." And I tried to stand up and my legs failed me

Exeenera Dawn said...

You guys are so lucky.....

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Well we ended up in LSODM by asking. I can say how I did..Well it was Christmas Eve last year most of us asked and i kinda started it because I asked to get my job of Grand Mage back but Derek said I could be an Elder but he may kill me off then others asked and then in January he told us who was in the book others didn't know until the book came out like I knew I was an Elder since he got Twitter and I knew I intereacted with Vex but like its all I knew others knew crap. They just knew they were in the book but it just was a matter of asking. I asked for Serephia and she's in the book.

Exeenera Dawn said...

Sorry, and Adrasdos.... really sorry... I'm sorry about your death... Two bullets?

The Empress Lady Adrasdos "the Ducktor" Dark, Flower Princess said...

Er, what?

And it's just Adra

Grand Mage Zafira Kerias said...

Wait who was Hayley's OC?

Sparky made Hayley . . .

*hugs Mara*

Adra will scream Ezter at me for saying this, but Hunter tries to trust Ez, whatever, whether he thinks he should trust he or not, because his theory is that if he doesn't trust in anything he'll go mad(er), and that's inevitable, so he might as why trust in her and take the fifty/fifty chance than take the 100% negative chance. Because trust is beautiful, and he feels it's better to trust than not, sometimes.
So try and trust in us. :)

@Amethyst: They asked Derek. :)

Because I've been lied to a lot.

And I've been betrayed a lot.

And I tried telling my best friend that I thought I was depressed

And she said

"oh my god, you never stop talking about yourself. shut up for once! it's not like depression will kill you anyway"

and then she left me.

little did she know it killed me inside

There was a girl in my school who was anorexic

I never knew her. but i heard about her.

she was skinny. so so skinny. and beautiful. everyone thought she was happy. she would be so kind and smile at everyone. and then one day she didn't show up for school.

and that was it.

my friend was telling me about it. i almost cried. i can't imagine what that girl went through.
