One Of Them Days
I continued my work on the Rankin feature and Scotland's Treasure. I may have to ask for an extra couple of days for the latter because I have seen something in Edinburgh on Saturday that I would like to cover for the January issue. I'll have to run it by the Ed first.
I read Rankin's story from One City, Showtime. I enjoyed it more than Welsh's I have to say. It had a better twist and was more fun to read. I found myself racing through it unable to put it down. With Welsh's story, Murrayfield (you're having a laugh), I was reading more out of intrigue than being propelled along. I felt Welsh was treating it as an opportunity to say something political, whereas Rankin was just spinning a damn good yarn based, yet again, on a part of Edinburgh's fascinating history. I've still to read Smith's.
And that's about it. Well, it's about as much as you're getting.
Just one of them days, I'm afraid.
