I've painted (or written ) myself into a corner, so to ease my frayed nerves I painted another stupid picture.
My problem with Old Geezers 2 is that I've embroiled myself in the "what would happen if you went back in time to murder your father", paradox.
The fact that my characters have not gone back in time to murder anyone, let alone their fathers, isn't much help. And my weasly cop-out of using the Many Worlds Scenario to avoid the problem isn't working.
I will work it out and have fun doing it. And of course using paradoxes means that no one can really prove me wrong, except that should I really mess it up leaving the reader and myself feeling cheated, nobody will buy book three, which is nearly finished.
But not tonight. Another slice of toast and Marmite before bed then tomorrow I'll come back refreshed, maybe, I hope.
