Owen's Novel Report – and a bit of good news for a change!

I’m back on track a little with the third draft tonight, a couple of chapters reviewed and revised. I must admit, I do tend to be a perfectionist – hence the reason for this taking so long!

Still, I hoping to speed up a bit now – and I’m also starting to think ahead and step up a gear in ‘Dragon Line’s’ promotion over the next few weeks. Some of it, at least, should end up on the Authonomy site again. Watch this space.

Anyhow, I’m sure that reading my tiresome ramblings about progress are of little interest to you so – moving rapidly on – here’s a link to something a bit more upbeat (a first for Dragon Line blog?)

Could this be the answer to Peak Oil (or, at least, rising petrol prices)? Apparently, a laboratory in Oxford has been working on a hydrogen-derived fuel replacement for three years (the whole thing has been kept secret until now). According to an article in today’s Daily Express, this new fuel is based on a molecular structure that replicates a liquid and produces zero carbon emissions. Furthermore, it is claimed that it can be used in existing cars as well as new builds. Its anticipated that it could retail at 90p a litre and could be rolled out in three years.

Exciting. Is this the answer to our problems? Certainly, one to keep an eye on and maybe consider as an investment opportunity. Still, the AA is being a little reserved at this time so we shouldn’t get too carried away.

About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
