So there I was, sitting at my desk, Gaunting busily away, aware that BL is awaiting delivery, and I had this idea. After weeks - months, maybe - of background thinking, I suddenly and unexpectedly got the plot structure of my next Horus book, in full detail, ping!
I knew roughly what I wanted to do, but - when I wasn't looking, as it were - it suddenly popped into sharp focus.
Thanks, brain. What am I going to do with that? It's pushing all the Gaunt stuff out of my ear, and the Gaunt stuff is good. AND ON A DEADLINE!
