2014: Syncing and Downloading

I’ve had this post regarding new years resolutions brewing for weeks now and I thought it would be best to get it out before January is over. Good plan, yes? Did you make any? How is that working out for you? I don’t do resolutions for the simple reason it’s like drawing a line in theContinue reading “2014: Syncing and Downloading”

Na-NOOOOOOO!-WriMo

    I signed  up for Nano again this year. Can you read the stupid tattoo on my forehead? Yeah, thought so. You see, I write slowly. For a slow writer to sign up for Nano is like being lactose intolerant at an all-you-can-drink-milkshake bar. Sooner or later there will be pain and suffering. Right nowContinue reading “Na-NOOOOOOO!-WriMo”

265 in… 100 to go

My diary informs me that today is the 265th day of 2013. There are 100 days until another year bites the dust. Its enough to make my head split in half. I’ve been scarce here, I know. I do poke my nose in to check up on you every so often. Quietly, like a mouse.Continue reading “265 in… 100 to go”

There’s an elephant in the room

This past week I revisited the first three chapters of my first novel for the sake of querying just for fun. I’ve been around the block with this one, each time they were requested, those three chapters would dust themselves off and play ambassador for the chapters waiting in the wings, hoping for their turn.Continue reading “There’s an elephant in the room”

Inspired by… THAT?

  So the grody thing in todays exotic photo is a dishevelled black satin sash that I took with me to Conference on a whim. It was lurking in between two dance costumes and I turned a blind eye and let it creep in. It found its way into writing class one morning. Who knew anContinue reading “Inspired by… THAT?”

Creature of the Night

I’ve always been an owl not a fowl, but with my kids on holiday – my nocturnal tendencies are getting out of hand. My days are filled with wipe this, feed that, mop this, carry that, tidy this, cook that, find this, pick up that, pick up that again, all to the tune of non-stopContinue reading “Creature of the Night”

Indulgence…

It is 10:13pm, Friday night. Today started at 5am and marched on at the relentless pace of an army on the trail of the enemy. I’m tired and cranky and feeling somewhat out of sorts. So I’m going to indulge. Is that the sound of taps and bubble bath… I hear you ask… HECK NO!Continue reading “Indulgence…”

Goosies and salty tears

My heart has a way of recognising truth long before my mind catches up. When truth hits home inside of me, two things happen – I get goosebumps all down my arms and I find myself blubbing like a baby. Without fail. Every time. As a writer, I get excited when I go goosies. SimplyContinue reading “Goosies and salty tears”
