A new sunrise

Greetings from the great beyond! Firstly can I apologise for the non-existent posts over the last year or so. My life has taken a dramatic twist and I am still running to keep up with it all. After many years of crying and stalking publishers on the net, I had my first short story published.Continue reading “A new sunrise”

Don’t Do That! – Five for Friday

I’m running so late today. It’s been a frantic week as we’ve had builders working on the house. ‘The noisy one’, was sent home from school with chronic earache and ‘The bitey one’, is teething and as a result, extra bitey. He has also become a fan of early wake up calls, the most recent beingContinue reading “Don’t Do That! – Five for Friday”

How do you do it?

Stephen King writes longhand onto yellow legal pads. J K Rowling writes longhand then transfers it to screen – editing as she goes. George R. R. Martin writesContinue reading “How do you do it?”

Apologies…again!

I’m officially the worst blogger…ever!!!! The bathroom is done! We’ve the cleared the clutter! So I enrolled on the Blogger 201 course and settled down to a great two weeks of stretching myself and my blog. But with the school holidays already in full swing, my kids had other ideas! I have three wonderfully, crazy boys.Continue reading “Apologies…again!”

Blogs, blogs everywhere…

…and not enough time to read! There are so many great blogs on here and I’m spending so much time on the Reader, I think I’m on the cusp of a new obsession. Day 8 of ‘blogging 101’ asks us to comment on four blogs we’ve never commented on before. So I decided to logContinue reading “Blogs, blogs everywhere…”
