I Hate Thinking Up New Titles For Blog Posts

When you write, you run out of steam.

It's obvious. When you do anything for long periods of time, you're going to run out of steam. You need to take a break, take a walk, do something else, recharge your batteries... I've got a few things I do, and they all work, but nothing- NOTHING- reinforces my enthusiasm as much as my Minions.

Whether it's reading the Comments on this accursed Blog (on those rare occasions when I CAN read the Comments grrrr) or popping in to the Bebo page (which I will do soon, I promise) or just heading over to the official (and fan-run) Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Skuttlebugfans), I always end up with a grin on my face, ready to get back to writing.

I never comment on the Facebook page, but I do visit. I have to, really. SOMEONE has to make sure these nutcases are behaving themselves. It was set up as something completely unofficial, but was filled with so many genuine folks that we just had to make Cory and Aby and Summer a part of the Skulduggery team. The wonderful thing about this is that, in some small way, you get to know the regular posters. I've never spoken with Zukiswa, but I know I'd like her if I did. Then there's Ellie and Ashley, two of the weirder ones. Georgina, of course, who has been around for YEARS and whom I adore. Olivia, my- ahem- wife of sorts. Never forgetting Becky, the irrepressible Becky, a girl for whom the word 'obsessed' was undoubtedly coined. There are loads of others- thousands of others, in fact- and their enthusiasm is infectious and good-humoured, and I'm glad that they have such a wonderful place to communicate.

(EDIT: and a quick glance at the Facebook page has made it clear that I somehow forgot to mention my dear Katy Amsden, one of my longest serving Minions. And while I'm not going to name everyone here, because this isn't a shout-out page, I will say hello to Joe and Nicole and Jordan and Ella- cool tattoo- and of COURSE a big hug and kiss goes to Megan Hobbs, with the clear understanding that she never mention the word baguette ever again.)

Another wonderful place is the Forums, at www.skulduggeryforums.co.uk. Again, I don't post any comments in the Forum, for a whole lot of reasons, mostly because I want to see how it evolves without my interference.

Practically every subject you could think of, to do with Skulduggery, is discussed here. Every few months I drop by and spend an evening just reading through the conversations. And there are some STARTLING conversations. The great thing is that you get real and honest opinions on the books and the various characters. You have people staunchly defending their point of view- like Liliana, who I've met a few times in Germany- and people working to convince others that their view is the right one. I've read their theories on what's going to happen, and some of these theories have veered close to what I had in mind, and some veered off wildly into the distance.

The internet, as we all know, is the refuge of the bully. You hear about it constantly- cyber-bullying and the ramifications it can have. And no doubt you've seen it yourself- focussed hatred and anger towards one individual that will not relent until that individual leaves. I've said it before, how happy I am that this Blog shows none of those tendencies, and neither does the Facebook page, and neither does the Forums. In the Forums, you have polar opposite opinions clashing with each other, but no one takes it personally. You have people arriving in the middle of a thread and announcing that, you know what? They don't really like the books anymore. And you get the politest and most understanding responses. You get one person loving Death Bringer, and then another hating it, and there is no animosity between them (the people who profess to dislike the most things seem to Synopsis and ExtraterrestrialGuy, but I think that's part of their inherent charm...).

I've never had a problem with people not liking these books. You can't please everyone, after all. If I read a bad review on Amazon or somewhere similar, I take it onboard, see if they have a point, and then move on. If it's constructive criticism, maybe it can even make the next book better. If it's not particularly constructive, then so be it. They didn't like it, and nothing I do or say will change that. And it's so gratifying that you, my Minions, seem to agree with me on this. There really is no point in getting annoyed with someone just because they don't like the same things you do.

One of the best Forum discussions I've read recently has been, bizarrely, part of the Pairings thread, where people hook characters up with each other. There is a group of people- Terry, Demented Kat, Moonie, Kribu, Holly-wa, Hallow Vigilance- who went off and had a long chat about, ahem, Valduggery. And for those of you who can't work out what Valduggery is, I'm not going to shatter your innocence here.

The thing about this discussion is the level to which all of this has been thought through. It stops being merely about the idea of Valduggery, and becomes an examination of Valkyrie and Skulduggery as individuals, and how much they mean to each other. As an extension of this, you also get a detailed investigation into the other characters as well.

Because these Minions, like most of you, seem to have an encyclopedic knowledge of all things Skulduggery, they regularly quote a line or two from the earlier books that have relevance to the later books. (I'm not really a fan of foreshadowing, and contrary to popular belief there isn't any of that in this series. Rather, there are hints of secrets that certain characters are keeping, that will only become apparent the more you read- and the more you re-read.) I've had a smile on my face when the conversation turns to how Skulduggery reacted to a certain piece of news in Mortal Coil, a reaction that only becomes understandable once you read Death Bringer, and then relate it back to what China said in the first book. It's so much FUN, as a writer, to drop these hints just when the series is starting off, and then wait a few years for the payoff. And it's places like the Forums, like the Facebook page and on Skulpedia that these things come to light.

So thank you, Minions, for all your hard work and thought and dedication. Thank you for treating each other with respect, and warmth, and thank you for how you welcome newcomers into the fold.

By the way, you're all insane.

I'm going to leave the first comment, to see if it makes any difference to whether or not I can read the OTHER comments.

And now I'm going to write.

Sparky Braginski said...

No Master Derek, that won't help!

When you go away the window will close!

You have to post a comment to be able to read them all here!

Or, alternatively, you could click on the name of your blog post, and view the comments from there!

Hope I helped.

Sparky Braginski said...

I knew it was worth getting on now.

I GOT 2ND & 3RD!

Rim the Shadow Ripper said...

Wow soo close to the top!!!

Sparky Braginski said...

I also hate thinking up new blog post names.

On the account of Valduggery, I am seriously against it, but in saying that, I can understand why people are for it.

I, for one, do not think Cal should be in a relationship. I want to see Ghastly and Tanith together in some capacity.

I just had an idea.

Derek, you wouldn't possibly make Ghastly so desperate as to get a Remnant inside himself on purpose, would you?

Just putting it out there.

Not a fan of foreshadowing!?

Gordon's style of writing is to bring up a character, make it sound great, then reveal that they're a really horrible, little person.

I believe that you are doing SOMETHING along those lines with Val and Skulduggery.

That's all.

Sparky Braginski said...

I am now going to try to fall asleep again.

BYE!!!

Rim the Shadow Ripper said...

Bye Sparky!!!
And Derek I completely agree with Sparky!!! I feel so sorry for ghastly!!
AND YES I AM INSANE!!!

Bethany said...

Derek, all the thanks should be going to you. You gave us this amazing world to escape to. You introduced to these wonderful characters who keep us going.

I'm not gonna lie. Three weeks ago, I tried to commit suicide. One of the reasons I didn't go all the way was Skulduggery and this blog. I met you in September in Dublin and it was genuinely one of the best days of my life. You give me something to look forward to. You give me a reason not to cut, not to want to end this, but to get help. You're an amazing human being and I owe you my life. So thank you, Derek. Thank you.

What do mean " We are all insane!"

Sparky Braginski said...

But... Hayley...

I... Want.... It.

Luciana said...

You need to comment and keep the window open or just go on your phone, like moi! xD
OMGG I SAW A PICTURE OF YOU ON MY MATHS CORRIDOR EARLIER (it's where the library is) I ACTUALLY DIED A LITTLE OF EXCITEMENT AND MY FRIENDS DID NOT UNDERSTAND....*looks ashamed of friends*
Yes, it is VERY true that we are insane, but that is what makes us so cool :D Now...I think I shall get back to writing myself :3
You are such a nice, down to earth person and I am waiting for Becky to mega spaz about this....

Now....Back to my writing, I am actually going this time...If I am not roped into holding a quiz or explaining something Skulduggery related to someone! :D Oh well, if it's Skulduggery related it's all good xD Especially mine and Donald's constant arguments :')
Yes...Can't get distracted here...Must carry on writing! No matter how horrible it is :L DC better not find out about this....He'd post a link because only you can change my mind on whether it is any good :L Hahaha!
Right. Yes. Stop getting distracted by the whole Skulduggeryness of it all...If that is possible......

Sapphire Rhoda said...

Whoa you got the End Of The World?????
LUCKY!!!!
Yeah you can call me Saph, also
DONT TELL ME ANYTHING RaisingCain!
--NO SPOLIERZ!!
how long is it?

Strawberryjellyfish said...

OMG derek landey your books are literally AMAZING!!!!!! whether i'm stressing out over maths or blanking out the world i always grab a copy of skulduggary or my kindle, sit down in my squashy armchair and start reading. i can read your books for hours on end and can't wait untill the next one comes out. Oh, and the whole thing with tanith, you mentioned that the 'thingy' (which did that procedure on Val to seal her true name) was experimenting on where the soul was in the body. are you possibly going to have him find where it is in the body, and then surgically remove the remnant from Tanith's soul??? just a theory i've been working on :D
and again, you are a literary LEGEND!!!!!!

Lynxia Lost said...

I got TEOTW!

Sparky Braginski said...

*looks at peiople saying they got TEOTW*

NO. NO. NO.

I WANT IT.

YOU KNOW WHY I WANT IT.

STOP RUBBING THE FACT THAT I CAN'T TRUST AUSTRALIA'S LEADING BOOKSTORE IN MY FACE.

RaisingCain said...

Feeling sad because I'm not insane enough to be mentioned by Derek...and I haven't met him either which doesn't help...DARN IT...life sucks sometimes!

Luciana said...

I have to wait until next Thursday to get TEOTW.... :( At least it might get me away from all the hell that is the real world...It should get me away from my brother for a while...I should be able to not want to punch someone for 2 seconds...I can handle that...I hope....

Lynxia Lost said...

BRB guys.

@Sparky - I'm sure you'll get it soon.

RaisingCain said...

It's not really really long...about 127 pages!! But I lobe and I shall not be giving anything away!!

Don't joke about vampires tho...


Slightly unrelated but yeah...thought you should be aware of this fact!!!

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Hi Derek! It's great to here how awesome other SP fans are. I wish I could get to know them all! As it is, I am having trouble just coming onto the blogs now days. I miss chatting with people here. I hope I can back to it soon.
Because of you and the people on this blog I started writing. I even wrote a few poems. It took a lot of courage to start.
It's only fan fiction but it's a great start for me. I don't know if I will ever be good enough to try and publish a book. But I don't care. I will just write when I can because it is fun. :)
My parents think I'm a fool and wasting time.(they are half right) Because of their heavy disapproval it is so hard to find the time to write when I feel I will be safe to get lost in my writing.
I am constantly encouraged by the other SP minions here. They are so nice to me that I think I can write absolute crap and they will be kind about it. :P
I am truly blessed to have come across the SP books and and epica author and person as you Derek, as well as the other SP Minions. They are all just so freaking EPICA!
I love you all!
*hugs everyone*
SO THANK YOU DEREK for being so AWESOME and keeping up with all the SP fan sites and this blog!
:D

Mr Landy, if you read this,how do you get over being really stuck on a piece of writing- writers block, if you like?
Thanks! (I'm Stella, my user name is REALLY weird. )

RaisingCain said...

Loving THE END OF THE WORKDS title because you're awesome enough to listen to MCFLY and know they have a song with the sane title <3

Love you Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter, Harry Judd and of course Derek Landy for having such a good title!!

Sparky Braginski said...

Why couldn't that be said, hmmm?

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

HELLO ROBIN! *waves crazily*
Hows it going?
*skips around Sparky and Flame flinging rose petals everywhere*

Robin Snowscar said...

I'm going to crack these stupidly cryptic remarks Mr Landy and I better not be proven right because I will(Insert death threat here) *smiles cheerfully*

Robin Snowscar said...

Hey Kallie

LYNXIA *glomps*

Sparky Braginski said...

*pulls a rose petal out of my hair*

Hi Robin.

Flame Phoenix said...

Sparky, it was something more than that but,

unfortunately, me has to go.,

*hugs and kisses Sparky*

Goodbye

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Hi Hudson!
:D

*hopes Derek will come back on*

Sparky Braginski said...

Robin, you ARE a member of the Straight Jackets.

That makes you as crazy as they come.

Sparky Braginski said...

Aww. Bye Flame.

This also means that I'll be taking my leave.

Farewell!

Robin Snowscar said...

Hi!

4060f774-57c7-11e1-bffd-000bcdca4d7a said...

bye flame and sparky!

4060f774-57c7-11e1-bffd-000bcdca4d7a said...

gotta go 4 dinner.

Sapphire Rhoda said...

im eating...............what r YOU doin
:D

Robin Snowscar said...

Golden God - he titled himself I believe *eye roll with small smile*

Robin Snowscar said...

I'm waiting to be fed and complaining about my arm. My arm hurts - I had an injection!

Ravel said...

Derek! You have to visit the Skulduggery Wiki!

www.skulduggery.wikia.com

Also, please visit this Facebook page!

http://www.facebook.com/skulduggerypleasantfactions?sk=wall

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

See ya 4060f774-57-c7-11e1-bffd-000bcdca4d7a! *hugs*
Can I call you 406 for short?
:D

Lynxia Lost said...

Bye 406! What injection Robin?

Robin Snowscar said...

I. Am. Going. To. Murder. The. Internet.

It won't let me post on my own blog! GAH!

Robin Snowscar said...

Some random booster thing Lynxia

Lynxia Lost said...

Oh, I had one a couple of weeks ago for tetanus and measles and something else.

Robin Snowscar said...

It was tetanus, polio and diptheria apparently

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Sorry your arm is sore Robin.:/

*hugs gently*

Derek Landy said...

Sparky, you beauty! Now I can read the rest of the comments!

Kal- haven't seen you around here in AGES (although that might be due to the fact that I haven't been able to read the comments until now...)

You know the thing I hate about real life? It's the monotony. It's how dull it all is. Real life values practicality above all else, and practicality flies in the face of creativity. Whenever you're feeling down, Kallista, just remind yourself of the friends you have here.

Flame- happy birthday!

RaisingCain has TEOFTW?? Good God! OK, just checked the Facebook page, and a few people there have read it too. Oh you Minions, always so eager...

Stella- I combat writer's block by taking a break, not thinking about it. Read a book, watch a movie, hang out with friends. Do something to get your enthusiasm up. That's how I deal with it.


And Bethany- with a little work, and a lot of determination, the world can be a better place than you could ever have imagined. No matter how bad things get, always remember that this world has ME in it. And then everything will be ok.

Lynxia Lost said...

Yeah I had that one a couple of months ago. Two tetanus ones in one year. No idea why.

Robin Snowscar said...

I'm okay Kallie, just being very dramatic *grin*

Lynxia Lost said...

Derek didn't mention me... :(

*is on the verge of crying, something I haven't done in years*

Sparky Braginski said...

YAY!!!

Robin Snowscar said...

*pats Lynxia on the head* We'll be unmentioned together

Sparky Braginski said...

Not yay!

I think I'm going to die here now... *crawls into a corner and dies*

Ahem. Yes. The Forum is a lot of fun. :D (And Valduggery forever!)

Robin Snowscar said...

Valduggery is better than Fletcherie I get a headache just thinking about Fletcher

Sparky Braginski said...

*is still hugging Shadow*

Don't feel bad!

I hate feeling good when someone feels bad!

Lynxia Lost said...

Valduggery! *stops crying* Strange and sick! Fletcheryie or Valson forever!

Sparky Braginski said...

Valson?

Robin Snowscar said...

*Is going to murder Shadow*

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

YAY! DEREK!
*hugs tightly*
I MISSED YOU SO MUCH!
*sobs dramatically*


I'm in the process of writing you a BIG THANK YOU for the AWESOMELY EPICA gifts I got from the Friend get Friend contest Derek!

XDDDDD

Luciana said...

RAVEL! HAHAHA! WHY DID YOU DO THAT? THAT WAS MY WHOLE PLAN!!!!!!!! It might not be my page and I might be leaving the Necromancers and the whole page for....Certain reasons but that was still my plan! Also, Ravel...I'm not suicidal! Socially awkward Penguin is talking to people :O
Also...I need more inspiration for this murder.....I have decided that one of them has their whole arm cut clean off and then bleeds to death after watching her hubby die very slowly....I toned it down a lot :3 I have more but that isn't so good, just carving stuff into their bodies with a knife.... :D
Hmmm....
Oh yeah and DEREK! I totally owe you! I got an A* in my English GCSE story thanks to you! You inspired me (only three people have ever done that, you being one of them)! I actually don't think I would have coped with life without SP <3 I owe you so much!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Derek ^.^

Sapphire Rhoda said...

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE ONE TIME DEREK COMES ON, AND I MISS IT???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????/
Y IS THE WORLD SO CRUEL?

Lynxia Lost said...

Sparky Braginski said...

Ah.

Then yes, but no.

Kribu said...

Ohh, and my copy of The End of the World has been dispatched, yay!

Of course, a friend already has hers - lucky UK people - and I have to wait at least a week for mine, but... yay!

Robin Snowscar said...

@Sparky - Why? *surprised expression*

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen said...

Cheer up my friends! Derek will be on again! remember he says he likes to check in with us often! And now, thanks to Sparky, he can read the rest of the comments now! YAY!

Sapphire Rhoda said...

and he didn't mention me....what a sad day...

Lynxia Lost said...

You kill me Robin and no more Me, Myself and the Gun at My Head or Wilting Rose or One for me, two for you...

Robin Snowscar said...

Mine TEOTW has not yet arrived I believe my mother has hidden it from me!

Sparky Braginski said...

Because killing people sends a bad impression.


And killing people doesn't make them your friend. It just makes them dead.

Robin Snowscar said...

*cries* No Shadow you can't do that!

Sapphire Rhoda said...

*sigh*
im an impatient girl

Lynxia Lost said...
