Terrible, just terrible…

… that I don’t seem to be able to find the time to write my Senna versus Schumacher story. I haven’t given it too much priority of late — or rather, at all, in 2009 — due to all kinds of commitments in my personal life, work and church-related voluntary work.

So, sadly I haven’t done very much research on the 1994 French Grand Prix, let alone write the chapter. Realistically speaking, I won’t finish it in December, either, so I’ll have to aim for January at the earliest.

2009 season over: more time for writing

With the 2009 Formula One season now finished, I will have a couple of hours more to spend on writing ‘The Encounter Down Under’ — at least some 2 hours every other Sunday afternoon. First of all, I’ll have to finish my research for the 1994 French Grand Prix, which will be chapter 8 of my Senna versus Schumacher book. My goal is to finish this chapter in November.

Planning research on French GP for next week

With the Canadian Grand Prix chapter of my Senna versus Schumacher story all but out of the way, I can cast my gaze on the 1994 French Grand Prix. I plan to research that race — which of course saw the return of ’92 World Drivers’ Champion Nigel Mansell at Williams-Renault in real life — next week. And, though I’ve not quite managed to finish the Canadian GP in September, I hope to have the French race done by mid November.

Started work on Canadian GP chapter

Yes, I’ve gone back to writing… finally! I’ve read all my research on the 1994 Canadian Grand Prix, and started on the race preview.

Some additional research

During my writing, this afternoon, I realised I needed some more information on the Île Notre-Dame and its history — 1967 World’s Fair and 1976 Summer Olympics — as well as some more details on previous GPs.

Much work to do

So, although I re-started work on The Encounter Down Under, I’ve still got a lot of work to do. I still want to finish chapter 7 before the end of the month, though.
