Yesterday there was a fake birth announcement for Rosamund Mary Watson in The Telegraph. A promo picture of John and Mary with the baby was also released. Expectedly, the fandom exploded. I, however, realised that I just DGAF anymore. My strong suspicion is that the baby (like every other character in the show) will just be a prop whose only function is to facilitate a twist in a plot that has been meandering off course for some time. The “I love you” trailer didn’t move the needle much for me either.
The truth is I fell out of love with Sherlock at the end of season 3 but couldn’t really admit it to myself. When that Moriarty animation turned up asking, “Did you miss me?” my answer was an emphatic no. Whenever a show doubles back to the vanquished supervillain to pique our interest, don’t we all know deep in our hearts that it’s over, that things aren’t really moving forward? I tried to keep my hopes up even after The Abominable Bride (which I would have enjoyed more had they just done the Victorian one-off). Explaining away huge chunks of a story that you spent millions of pounds producing with “It was all a dream!” is another huge red flag that the writers are running out of interesting ideas.
BEFORE HOLMES MET WATSON is doing really well on Wattpad and is closing in on 15,000 reads! I've gone through a few covers and never really been pleased with any of them. So, today I finally sat down and did a redesign. My design skills are limited, but keeping it simple has worked well for me, and I'm pleased with how the new cover turned out. Can't wait until I can afford to hire a proper designer, though.
So... I got one lead from #PitMad and submitted my query. Let's see how this goes...
I'm self-published, but I've recently been considering querying agents again. Today I stumbled across the #PitMad tag in my Twitter timeline, and decided submitting the maximum three tweets was worth the minimal effort.
