And the 09 Nanowrimo Novels are….

Oct 15, 2009 | Writing | 0 comments

Change (7.5k more or less is part of my dissertation)- science, technology, and the understanding of how knowledge affects our decisions.

Glass Block (redux, last rewrite, from scratch) – seven years after writing the original, I’m going to rewrite it one last time, and it, with all of my other stories are going on a pen drive in our safe – no more deleting them in a fit of pique.


Valubaby(creative non)fiction (which will be more fiction than non) about the pain of working out whether it’s possible to have children in certain situations.  Of all three, this one is going to be the hardest.  There’s been a lot of conversation about family in my units of friends – perhaps because, in most circles, I’m either the youngest, or appear to be the youngest of my friends, and in other circles, I’ve got friends that aren’t even there yet (in a relationship and having kids), so I’ve got few people I can talk to about it – which means my feelings, worries, fears, and all the other things that affect our personalities anyway, grew into a shadow of a person of their own. (I’ll explain more on that on Friday!).  If I ignore her, she’s only going to get louder, so I’m going to write her story, and see where it takes me.  Much like ‘Sleepless’ which I wrote in 2005, and 21 Doors in 2006, this one is fairly close to the bone in many places, so I’m carefully working out how to handle it.

Anyone else got thier titles and blurbs worked out yet?

The Covidcoaster – a week of ill #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun #kaiatus #Bloggingfromatoz

Last Monday, I posted about how myself and my youngest tested positive for CV19. Monday/Tuesday, I started getting really sick. Monday, I'd been quite cheerful - after all, Artenapan, my daughter, had had three days of a cough and little else. That's not how it played...

The two pink lines we didn’t want… #mondayblogs #rungirlrun

Just a quick one this week, as I have had a positive LFT for covid this morning. Lft 2 pink lines #covidtest #UK What this means in all practical terms is I'm more grateful than ever for my vaccines and, in part due to something my partner said this week, I've pitched...

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
